Money Watch Q&A: Health Insurance Extension

Posted: Updated:
Nevada officials are adding a special six-week enrollment period buy health insurance as mandated by the Affordable Care Act. The extension period will be from March 15th through April 30th. 

Health insurance experts say people are starting to realize they owe fines for not having had insurance in 2014. Some Nevadans only realized it as they started preparing their taxes. So this extension will help them avoid future penalties.      

Mike Dillon, of Dillon Insurance Services, says the fees for 2015 are higher than they were for 2014. An individual adult without health insurance will be fined $325 or two-percent of your income - whichever is greater.
