 HHS, states consider extra health insurance enrollment period

Both the Obama administration and states that run their own health insurance marketplaces are considering an extra enrollment period for tax filers who learn they owe a fine for not carrying insurance.

“You’re going to hear from us, one way or another, within the next two weeks on whether that’s something that we would do. It’s an issue that’s been raised,” Health and Human Services Department Secretary Sylvia Mathews Burwell said at an event in Texas Feb. 13.  She confirmed in a Wednesday video that HHS is considering adding the period, but an HHS spokesman says no decision has been reached.
