New Temporary Special Enrollment Period
Last week, the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) announced a new special enrollment period (SEP) that's in effect through March 31, 2016. This SEP will be offered to people who:
- Are not currently enrolled in federally facilitated marketplace (FFM) coverage for 2016
- Are not receiving advanced premium tax credits (APTC) because they failed to file their 2014 tax return and reconcile their APTCs
- Have subsequently filed their 2014 tax return and reconciled 2014 APTC
