Special Special Enrollment Periods
CMS has announced a new Special Enrollment Period March 15 through April 30, 2015, to assist consumers who unexpectedly learn while filing taxes that they are liable for a fine for the months of 2014 when they did not have health insurance for more than 3 months of that year.
Those eligible for a Special Enrollment in the federal Health Insurance Marketplace must meet these criteria:
- Currently not enrolled in coverage through the Marketplace for 2015
- Attest that when they filed their 2014 tax return they paid the fee for not having health coverage in 2014, and
- Attest that they first became aware of, or understood, the implications of the Shared Responsibility Payment, or fine, after the end of the Open Enrollment Period (February 15, 2014) in connection with preparing their taxes.
Members of the Southern Wisconsin Navigator Collaborative are developing plans with partners to enroll this special group of consumers.
