Affordable Care Act Deadline: December 16, 2014
If you want health care coverage under the Affordable Care Act to begin on January 1, then you have less than a day left to enroll. The deadline has been extended a bit until Tuesday, at 3 a.m. All 2014 coverage under the Affordable Care Act ends December 31, no matter when you enrolled. While last year, enrollment became a national nightmare with problems at the call centers and with the website, this year experts say things are running much better. Though that date isn’t the final chance to enroll during this enrollment period - Open enrollment runs through February 15, all consumers are encouraged to take action to enroll in or renew their coverage before the 3 a.m. deadline. For the uninsured, that means their new coverage will start as soon as January 1.
