News Release 1/14/15



Wednesday, January 14, 2015

In Indiana, 175,447 people signed up for coverage through the Health Insurance Marketplace 

HHS encourages consumers to sign up by Jan.15 for coverage that starts Feb. 1

This Thursday marks the second Open Enrollment deadline for the 2015 Health Insurance Marketplace. For coverage starting on Feb. 1, it is important for people to sign-up now, ahead of the Jan. 15 deadline.

“As of January 9, 175,447 Hoosiers have access to quality, affordable health coverage for 2015 through the Health Insurance Marketplace,” U.S. Department of Health and Human Services Secretary Sylvia M. Burwell said. “There are just over four weeks before the February 15 deadline and the end of Open Enrollment. For those who are thinking about getting health coverage, take a look at your options on or contact the call center. If you don’t enroll by February 15, then you may have to wait until next year to sign up for affordable coverage. In the first month, 88 percent of Indiana consumers who signed up were eligible for financial assistance. 

Since Open Enrollment began on Nov. 15, nearly 6.8 million consumers selected a plan or were automatically re-enrolled in the Federally Facilitated Marketplace. As we near this week’s deadline, officials from HHS are available for print, radio and television interviews. Satellite TV interviews are also available 

To request an interview with an official from HHS, email 

Five facts for consumers as we near the second open enrollment deadline:


  1. Deadline is fast approaching. Open enrollment is ending soon. The deadline to apply for coverage starting on Feb. 1, 2015 is this Thursday, Jan. 15. The final Open Enrollment deadline to sign up for 2015 coverage is Feb. 15. If people miss that deadline, they will likely have to wait to sign up for coverage until the next open enrollment season, with coverage starting in 2016.

  2. Enrolling in coverage is easier than ever. This year, the consumer experience at simpler, faster, and more intuitive. It is easy to shop; no log-in or application is required to see the plans in your area and find out how much financial help may be available. We streamlined this year’s application, reducing the number of screens people need to click through from 76 to 16. And you can even apply on your smartphone.

  3. More choices are available this year. More than 90 percent of consumers will be able to choose from three or more issuers—up from 74 percent in 2014. That means that consumers can choose from an average of 40 health plans in their county for 2015 coverage—up from 30 in 2014.

  4. Financial assistance is available. 88 percent of Hoosiers who selected 2015 plans through in the first month of open enrollment are getting financial assistance to lower their premiums. Nationally, eight out of 10 people can find coverage for $100 or less a month with tax credits through the Marketplace. That is less than some people pay for a cell phone or cable bill.

  5. Help is available. We are working to meet consumers where they are, whether that is online, over the phone or in person.
