    Important Dates

    October 1, 2013:  Open enrollment in the Health Insurance Marketplace begins.

    December 23, 2013: Must enroll by this date for coverage to be effective January 2014.

    March 31, 2014: Open enrollment in the Health Care Marketplace closes.

    Though March 31 was the last day officially to sign up, millions of people are potentially eligible for extensions granted by the administration.

     

    Those include people who had begun enrolling by the deadline but didn't finish, perhaps because of errors, missing information or website glitches. The government says it will accept paper applications until April 7 and take as much time as necessary to handle unfinished cases on HealthCare.gov. Rules may vary in states running their own insurance marketplaces.

     

    The administration is also offering special extensions to make up for all sorts of problems that might have kept people from getting enrolled on time: Natural disasters. Domestic abuse. Website malfunctions. Errors by insurance companies. Mistakes by application counselors.

     

    To seek a special enrollment period, contact the federal call center, at 1-855-889-4325, or the state marketplace and explain what happened. It's on the honor system. If the extension is approved, that brings another 60 days to enroll.
