Some people will get more time to finish enrolling in Obamacare insurance plans under new rules that include anyone who begins signing up before March 31 or was previously kept from enrolling by website flaws.
Americans who aren’t insured by March 31 are supposed to pay a penalty of as much as 1 percent of their income, according to the law. The extension, announced yesterday and clarified today, opens up the chance to produce many more last-minute enrollees. The U.S. website, healthcare.gov, drew 1.1 million visitors on March 24, the second-most in a single day.
Consumers who begin applying by 11:59 p.m. on March 31 will be able to complete their enrollment later in plans to take effect May 1, according to a document the government posted today.
