Latest in CHIR Video Series: Special Enrollment Opportunities for Affordable Care Act Coverage

More states – the latest being Connecticut and Rhode Island – are announcing special enrollment periods (SEPs) for people who learn during tax season that they must pay a penalty for not having health insurance in 2014. These decisions follow a similar one by the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) to grant a tax-time SEP for people in the federally run marketplaces.

In the latest in CHIR’s coffee conversations about health insurance topics, CHIR experts Sandy Ahn and Justin Giovannelli discuss Georgetown and Urban Institute research findings about action on SEPs in five state-based marketplaces, as well as federal and state decisions on SEPs for 2015.
