Out of luck after March 31
With all the talk about folks getting enrolled in the new Obamacare health plans, almost no one knows the critical nature of March 31. After that date, if you have not selected a health plan yet, you are out of luck until Jan. 1, 2015 — that is a long time to go without health insurance.
From April 1 until mid-October 2014, individuals cannot buy a health insurance policy (except for those with a “qualifying event” such as marriage, divorce, birth or adoption of a child, or loss of a job). And the policies you buy in October will not be effective until Jan 1.
Thousands of insurance agents and hundreds of navigators are ready to help individuals work though the confusing maze created by MNsure, the state’s health insurance exchange. If you are still uninsured, you should call IST.
