New York State of Health
The second open-enrollment period to select a health insurance plan ended on February 15, 2015. If you missed the open enrollment period for New York State of Health, the official health plan Marketplace, a Special Enrollment Period (SEP) is available. Families who had to pay a federal penalty for 2014 and were not aware or had not understood that they would incur a penalty may be able to enroll during the SEP. Those who are eligible to enroll during the SEP must do so by April 30, 2015.
Uninsured Americans (for 2015) will be penalized $325 per person or 2% of their household income, whichever is higher. Households will be penalized for uninsured children (under age 18) at half the adult rate ($162.50). The maximum dollar amount an uninsured family can be penalized is $975.
