The Deadline for Enrollment in Health Insurance is Nearing — Don’t Wait!

March 31 is the deadline for open enrollment on the Covered California health insurance exchange. Anyone who does not sign up for coverage by this date will not be able to enroll through the exchange unless he or she experiences a qualifying event or can qualify for an exemption. Not qualifying for either and not having health insurance opens up the possibility of a penalty that will be issued through taxes.

If the issue of getting coverage is due to problems with the website, it is recommended to access the site during non-peak hours. Those hours are: mornings, evenings and weekends. The site is sometimes down during the overnight hours due to scheduled maintenance. The best way to enroll is to use a PC or a laptop as a smartphone or tablet may not work properly with the site.
