ObamaCare Deadlines, Open Enrollment Changes

Here are the deadlines listed for past years:

  • Open enrollment 2014 deadline for ObamaCare was March 15th, 2014.
  • Open enrollment 2015 deadline for ObamaCare was February 15th, 2015.
  • Open enrollment 2016 deadline for ObamaCare was January 31, 2016.


ObamaCare open enrollment may change as we move forward. The “normal” deadline proposed would be December 15th of each consecutive year.

Keep in mind the deadlines apply to all of the private coverage in the individual & family market, both inside and Outside the Marketplace.

You will need to sign up prior to open enrollment ends! Regardless of how you plan on getting private health coverage for your family or yourself.

Most of the health insurance varieties, for instance employer sponsored coverage as well as Medicare have a unique open enrollment period. Some other forms of health insurance types like short term and or Medicaid you can acquire anytime in a year.
