If you don’t have heath insurance, you won’t have it this year unless you sign up at heathcare.gov by midnight on March 31, according to U.S. Health and Human Services Secretary Kathleen Sebelius.
Speaking at a press conference at Montclair State University this morning to promote the Affordable Healthcare Act to young people, Sebelius said that the government does not plan to extend the March 31 enrollment deadline for the individual market. Those who fail to enroll by the 31st will have to wait to enroll for health insurance until November and coverage will not take effect until 2015. The penalty in 2014 for failure to have health insurance is $95 or 1% of your income.
Sebelius said the heathcare.gov website is working well and that security concerns have been addressed.
Montclair State University has released a video of Sebelius’s press conference.
