29 Jan Last Deadline For Health Coverage 2015
Haven’t signed up for health coverage for 2015? If you’re considering buying insurance through the HealthCare.gov exchanges, your time is running out. February 15 is your last chance to enroll or make changes for this year’s coverage, and that date is coming up really soon. So why would you want to enroll in health care coverage?
Besides the obvious benefits of having health insurance, like ambulatory patient services, hospitalization, maternity and newborn care, doctor visits and emergency services, having insurance this year will also save you money.
Since signing up for insurance is easier than ever, those who don’t sign-up will face a penalty for the year they missed. The fee will be reflected in your tax return and can be calculated in two different ways like we outline here.
The Health Insurance Marketplace is an easy way to get insurance, offering savings based on a person’s income. If the Marketplace is not a viable option, there are other ways to sign up for health coverage. Insurance advisors can review your individual situation and guide you through the sign-up process.
Remember, even if you currently have health coverage, take time to contact an insurance professional. Reviewing your health plan yearly can potentially save you money and will ensure your information is up to date. See your yearly review as a way to look back and think if you were satisfied with your current plan.
