Beshear reopens enrollment period for health insurance

Did you miss the February 15 deadline to apply for discount health insurance? Now you have another chance.

Kentucky Gov. Steve Beshear announced Tuesday a special enrollment period from March 2 to April 30. Beshear said the grace period is for Kentuckians who did not realize they would have to pay a tax of at least $325 for not having insurance in 2015.

Those who missed the February 15 deadline and did not qualify for an exemption still have to pay a fee for any months they were not insured. But Beshear said if they sign up by April 30, they could avoid additional fees for the rest of the year.

People can apply online at https:// kynect. ky. gov or call (855) 459-6328.
