Consumers who had trouble with Washington Healthplanfinder have a second chance to enroll

The Washington State Health Benefits Exchange has announced a special enrollment through Feb. 23, 2015 for people who have experienced trouble enrolling in a health plan for 2015 through the state�s exchange, Washington Healthplanfinder.

�I am pleased that Washington consumers who have had trouble with Washington Healthplanfinder have an option for getting coverage effective Jan. 1,� said Insurance Commissioner Mike Kreidler. �I encourage affected consumers to act sooner rather than later.�

The special enrollment applies to people who made an effort to receive health coverage through http://www.wahealthplanfinder.org/ before the Dec. 23 deadline, but who were unable to complete their applications due to a technical error associated with the Washington Healthplanfinder system.

Starting at noon today, affected consumers should fill out an online request form for coverage retroactive to Jan. 1 at: https://petition.wahealthplanfinder.org/. If customers need assistance or do not have Internet access, they can call the Exchange�s Customer Support Center at 1-855-923-4633. Each request will be reviewed and customers will receive a notification of their special enrollment through email or mail.

The Exchange also posted a list of frequently asked questions about the special enrollment period.
