Yep we going thru this right now too. Work insurance ended Jan 31, healthcare.gov says the event gives us until April 2 to sign up.
However if you sign up after the middle of the month you wait an extra one, as in sign up March 15 you start ACA on April 1 but wait until St Patrick's Day and you start in May.
