Healthcare Enrollment Deadline Extended!

For Immediate Release
March 27th, 2014
On Wednesday, the Obama administration announced an extension for Americans trying to enroll for health insurance under the Affordable Care Act. However, this extension is for those who are currently trying to enroll by the March 31st deadline.

“Under the new rules, people will be able to qualify for an extension by checking a blue box on HealthCare.gov to indicate that they tried to enroll before the deadline,” according to the announcement. Starting in mid-April, people will not be eligible for an extension. The Obama Administration pushed for the extension in preparation for a surge of individuals who are seeking to get enrolled at the last minute.

To enroll for health insurance, visit www.healthcare.gov. You can find local help and get your questions answered by searching the Health Care Website. Additionally, if you or your clients need assistance in enrolling, find a Health Center in your area or contact Disability Rights NC.
