Insurance can be complicated. There are countless acronyms and insurance lingo. We will break down these terms and help you better understand the industry.

ACA enrollment extension granted to some individuals

While the official deadline for enrollment in Qualified Health Plans (QHP) under the Affordable Care Act remains Monday, March 31st, some individuals may be granted an extension.  HHS and the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS), who oversee the federal exchange at healthcare.gov, will allow individuals who start their application by March 31st but are unable to finish, to complete their enrollment in the first weeks of April.  Beyond that, only individuals who qualify for a Special Enrollment Period may enroll in a qualified health plan between April 1st and November 15th.  You can read a more detailed article on the ACA enrollment extension, here.
