Time to Enroll, Houston!

U.S. Health & Human Services Secretary Visited Houston with a Reminder to Enroll

Secretary Burwell 11-18-14

U.S. Secretary of Health & Human Services, Sylvia Burwell, met with community leaders and grassroots organizations, then held a press conference, at the Denver Harbor Multi-Service Center on November 18 to help spread the word that 2014 health insurance enrollment is open.

Open Enrollment is the time when people can find a new Marketplace plan, decide to keep their current plan, or see if they can get help paying for coverage. To make sure they’re covered in 2015, everyone should mark these four dates on the calendar:

  • November 15, 2014 is the first day to apply for, keep, or change coverage.
  • December 15, 2014 is the deadline to enroll for new coverage that begins on January 1, 2015. If one's plan is changing or one wants to change plans, enroll by December 15th to avoid a lapse in coverage.
  • December 31, 2014 is the day all 2014 Marketplace coverage ends, no matter when enrolled. Coverage for 2015 plans can start as soon as January 1st.
  • February 15, 2015 is the last day one can enroll in 2015 coverage before the end of Open Enrollment.

Save these dates and share them with friends, family and everyone -- because no one should miss out on affordable health coverage just because they missed the deadline. Find more enrollment info here.
