The deadline to register for health insurance under the Affordable Care Act has been extended to Feb. 22 for those who were attempting to enroll before the original deadline of Feb. 15.
According to a statement released by on the HealthCare.gov website:
“We know many of you worked hard to enroll in a plan through the Health Insurance Marketplace. Despite your best efforts, you may not have been able to complete your application and select a plan.”
“If that happened to you, don’t worry – you may still be able to get covered in 2015 if one of these applies to you:
- You tried to enroll in health coverage by February 15, but you didn’t complete your enrollment because of longer than normal wait times at the Marketplace Call Center on February 13, 14 and 15.
- You tried, but weren’t able to enroll in health coverage by February 15 because of a technical issue on HealthCare.gov, such as being unable to submit your application because verification sources were down.”
