You may qualify for a special enrollment period if:
- You didn’t know until after open enrollment ended on February 15, 2015, that the health care law required you and your household to have health coverage, or you didn’t understand how the requirement would impact you and your household.
- You owe a tax penalty for not having coverage in 2014.
- You aren’t already enrolled in 2015 coverage.
If you meet all three of these, you qualify for a special enrollment period and can apply for health coverage until April 30, 2015, to reduce your 2015 tax penalty.
