Need to know if a person with the following situation qualifies for the extended enrollment period of 15 March – 15 April 2015:
– No health insurance for all of 2014
– Work place health insurance (Staples, Inc) was not affordable
– Unaware of tax penalty
– Filed 2014 taxes using Turbo Tax – based on cost of health insurance through work the tax software claimed no penalty as the situation was deemed exempt for 2014
So – the person does not have health insurance and did not not pay a penalty based on current rules.
Can this person enroll during the extended enrollment period?
