Important deadlines for the Affordable Care Act are just around the corner. It’s not only the ACA deadlines that California residents should be aware of but another deadline in the quest for proper health insurance coverage is creeping up as well.
Covered California Deadline is Approaching
If you are a California resident who wants to be eligible for coverage through the ACA you need to be enrolled with Covered California by December 23, 2013 for a January 1, 2014 effective date. Many of the people who have submitted applications have not fully completed enrollment only 85,000 of the 385,000 people who submitted applications have completed the process and chosen a coverage plan.
Consumers have until March 31 to sign up without paying a penalty. Not purchasing coverage by this time will mean an entire year without any sort of health care insurance and the possibility of being charged a penalty fee by the federal government.
