How to get medical insurance after February 15, 2015
1. Special Enrollment Period for Obamacare

2. Short-Term Plan
But what if you not only missed Open Enrollment, but also do not have a Qualifying Life Event? The good news is that with ObamcareUSA.org, you can still get a health insurance plan. It differs from Obamacare, and is known as a Short Term Plan. Learn more about Short Term insurance here.
