About today's deadline

As most folks know, today's the last day of Phase 1 of the 2015 Open Enrollment season. That means that, for most of us, it's the last day to lock down coverage for a January 1, 2016 effective date.

Waitaminute Henry: what do you mean "most?"

Just received in email:

"Good news, Medical Mutual has made the decision to extend the deadline for Individual Off Exchange Application submissions to 12-31-15 in order to get a January 1st effective date."
So Buckeye State procrastinators have been given a two week reprieve (at least with one carrier); but keep in mind that this is only for Off-Exchange plans (no subsidies or cost-sharing help).

Be interesting to see if other carriers follow suit.
