Insurers and PPACA exchanges do enrollment time warp again | LifeHealthPro

The first PPACA open enrollment was supposed to start Oct. 1, 2013, and end March 31, 2014. Exchange managers reacted to severe enrollment system technical problems by extending the enrollment period for about two weeks in most of the country and for far longer in some states.

This year, managers of HealthCare.gov, the enrollment system for exchanges created by the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) and some state-based exchanges, say consumers who started the application process by Feb. 15 and were affected by enrollment system problems or mailing delays have until Feb. 22 to complete the application process.

Managers of most state-based exchanges have made similar enrollment period adjustment announcements, and insurers have created their own off-exchange enrollment deadline adjustments.
