Frequently Asked Questions



Can I still enroll in ACA/Obamacare plans now that Open Enrollment has ended?

Possibly. The 2015 Open Enrollment Period ended on February 15 and a special enrollment extension period for the tax season ended on April 30. These were the last periods you could enroll in ACA/Obamacare plans for the remainder of 2015. However, you can still apply now if you have had a “life event.” This includes dozens of cases such as you moved locations, got married, had a baby or simply had a change of income (an increase or decrease in your income). There are dozens of ways to qualify so start here to view rates and see if you’re eligible.

What happens if I don't sign up for Obamacare?

If you don’t have insurance, you’ll be fined and you won’t be able to receive free tax subsidies to reduce your monthly cost until enrollment re-opens in November. For 2015 the fine is 2% of your yearly income or $325 per adult, whichever is higher, and there are additional fines if you have children. The fee increases every year. In 2016 it is 2.5% of income or $695 per adult, whichever is higher.

What if I can't afford health insurance?

If you’re unemployed or make less than $46,680 a year you can get a tax subsidy to help you. Try our calculator or start the application process here and your subsidy will automatically be calculated based on the profile information you provide.

What is short-term health insurance?

Short-term insurance are temporary health insurance plan designed for people without health insurance or can’t afford the rates of major medical coverage.

Also, since it’s not considered minimum essential coverage under the Affordable Care Act (ACA), and you’ll have to pay a tax penalty at the end of the year – about 2% of your annual salary in 2015.
