The Affordable Care Act: Get Coverage Today

Although the ObamaCare Affordable Care Act was signed into law in 2010, the health plan initiative is projected to be fully implemented in 2015.  For those who have obtained ObamaCare, or for those who do not have a form of health insurance yet, here are some details to take into account at the start of this new year.

 

  • If you are enrolled in a 2014 ObamaCare Marketplace plan, your coverage ended December 31, 2014.  This is true no matter what date your coverage began in 2014.
  • To continue health coverage this year, you can renew your current health plan or choose a new plan through the Health Insurance Marketplace website (www.HealthCare.gov) until February 15th, 2015.
  • If you don't have health coverage during 2015, you may have to pay a penalty.  The fee in 2015 has increased to 2% of your income or $325 per adult/$162.50 per child (whichever is higher).

For further information, or to apply for healthcare coverage, visit www.HealthCare.gov.
