The new sign-up period is for people who meet three conditions:
(1) they’re paying the “individual mandate” tax for lacking insurance in 2014;
(2) they learned about the penalty after open enrollment closed Feb. 15; and
(3) they have not already enrolled in coverage for the 2015 plan year.
This new, special one-time enrollment period ends on April 30. For more information on the ACA, contact your employee benefits advisor
