June 25, 2014

"The next open enrollment period for plans offered in the [ACA's] insurance Marketplaces is set to occur between November 15, 2014, and February 15, 2015 -- just when many lower-income people are financially stressed by demands of the holiday season.... A more opportune time for scheduling open enrollment for the ACA Marketplaces may be between February 15 and April 15 -- weeks when low-income people typically receive income tax refunds and Earned Income Tax Credit payments. Such lump-sum payments could be applied to pay individuals' share of premiums."
