The New Insurance Marketplace (Obama Care):
Is There Still Time to Sign Up? If someone you know has not enrolled in health insurance through the new Health Insurance Marketplace, there is still time. The deadline to sign up for health insurance coverage for this year is March 31st, 2014. REMEMBER though if you have Medicare you do not need to do anything, you cannot get insurance through the new marketplace (sometimes called Obama Care). People who have insurance through their
employer or a private plan can keep that coverage if they want and it is still offered. If someone has no insurance and they choose not to enroll into Obama Care they will have to pay a penalty next year when they file taxes (if they don’t normally have to file taxes they will still have to pay a penalty). If you would like more information on how to sign up for insurance through the new Health Insurance Marketplace please call Spectrum Generations at 563-1363 or 1-800-639-1553 . A staff member will be happy to provide you with contact information in your area to a Navigator who can help you find a plan that works for you.
