With so much at stake for the Latino community, as well as all Americans, NCLR is committed to ensuring that those eligible can maximize the full benefits of the Affordable Care Act.
Recently, the federal government announced that it had extended the deadline to enroll in a health plan. In order to have insurance coverage that would start on January 1, 2014, consumers now have until December 23, 2013 to enroll. We have revised our “Key Dates” resource in English and Spanish for consumers as they continue along the road to enrollment.
However, it’s important to know that states operating their own Marketplaces are allowed to set their own enrollment deadlines and some will keep the original December 15, 2013 deadline. So it’s important for you to know the deadline of the state you live in.
We encourage you to not delay. Act now. Understand your options. Ask questions and get clarification. And then enroll so you can ring in the New Year with insurance coverage.
