March 31 Last Day to Enroll through Marketplace for Health Insurance Coverage This Year

If you do not have health insurance, March 31 is the last day to enroll through the Health Insurance Marketplace for coverage in 2014.

The Milwaukee Enrollment Network offers the following tips for getting help signing up for healthcare coverage by March 31:

  1. Be prepared. Whether visiting healthcare.gov or calling 1-800-318-2596, consumers should have the following information in hand about themselves and their household:
    • Social security numbers or document numbers for legal immigrants
    • Employer and income information for every person in the home who needs coverage (from pay stubs or W-2 forms)
    • Policy numbers for any current health insurance plans covering members of the household
  2. Start the enrollment process on-line or over the phone and follow up with a local enrollment assister, if additional help is needed in the next week. Anticipate very long hold times when calling the 800 number and slow processing on healthcare.gov due to surge volume.
  3. Keep a record of attempts to enroll on-line or over the phone. It's important that consumers write down the date and time they tried to enroll, to reflect any difficulty they experienced due to system errors.
  4. Dial 2-1-1 to find locations of enrollment support organizations and insurance agents. Although most enrollment assisters are fully scheduled with enrollment appointments on Monday, some organizations may have walk-up hours available.
