What to Do If You Missed the Obamacare Deadline
NEW YORK (TheStreet) -- The White House says there were 7 million individual health care sign-ups as of a March 31 deadline, while the Los Angeles Times, citing an upcoming Rand study, notes that only one-third of ACA health care signups were of uninsured people. (Rand says 9 million Americans have signed up for health care plans directly from insurers, but the vast majority of those individuals were insured.)
Then there's the issue of paid signups: The White House hasn't released a breakdown saying how many people signed up for a health care plan but have not paid. Nor do we know how many signups came from the all-important younger Americans, who are needed to balance out older enrollees using expensive health care services in greater volume.
But what if you missed the signup date, don't have health care and want it?
eHealth, a Mountain View, Calif., private online health insurance exchange, has a guide for people in that position.
