Special Enrollment Period for Consumers Who Have Shared Responsibility Payment


There is still time to GET COVERED!

HHS announced a new special enrollment period (SEP) for

consumers who find out they must pay the Shared Responsibility

Payment because they did not have coverage in 2014.  First

Choice Primary Care will have its navigators available to help

those individuals that qualify for the SEP.  

If any of you know anyone with questions about the enrollment

periods, feel free to contact us for any information.  

See below for the eligibility criteria.

Consumers are eligible for this SEP if they:

  • live in states with a Federally-facilitated Marketplace (FFM),
  • are not currently enrolled in 2015 FFM coverage
  • attest that when they filed their 2014 tax return

they paid the fee for not having coverage in 2014 and

  • attest that they first became aware of, or understood

the implications of, the Shared Responsibility Payment after the end

of open enrollment (Feb. 15, 2015) in connection with preparing their taxes.


This SEP does not apply to consumers who do not have to pay the penalty

but are subject to reconciliation and have to repay Advanced Premium Tax Credits


This SEP will begin on March 15th and end on April 30th. Consumers who

qualify must complete the entire enrollment process (that is, including selecting a plan)

by 11:59 pm E.S.T. on April 30th.

If a consumer enrolls in coverage before the 15th of the month, coverage will

be effective on the first day of the following month. Feel free to contact any

of our navigators for any inquiries. Their contact information is listed below.
