Open enrollment for ACA health plans extended thru April 30

February 21, 2015

We have not received an official announcement about the affordable care act open enrollment period extension but it is being widely reported in the media.

Apparently some of you have been living under a very large rock and somehow had no idea that you had any obligation to go out and get yourself some health insurance coverage.  And your first clue that there was this thing called Obamacare was when your tax preparer hit you with the news that a big chunk of your refund just got gobbled up by this thing called the “Individual Responsibility Payment”.

Well the federal government feels your pain, and has decided to give you a few more weeks to try and prevent your refund from next year’s return from being eaten up again.  If you had a penalty payment on your 2014 tax return and can self attest to the fact that you just literally had no idea whatsoever that you were supposed to do something with health insurance, well sir, you are in luck.  Simply visit to see you can still obtain coverage in the extended open enrollment.

Stay tuned, we may post more information about this when and if we get an official pronouncement about the extension.  In the meantime, please feel free to contact Tax On Wheels, LLC at 803 732-4288 if we can be of assistance to you.
