Why Wait? - Answer

Maybe the Sefer Hachinuch is telling us a special chiddush here regarding matza. One might think that if a person is FORCED to eat matza then it is no longer considered "derech cheirus" - the way free men, eat and therefore there should be no obligation to coerce a person to do so because he wouldn't fulfill his obligation even if he eats [because it is not derech cheirus]. In order to dispel this notion the S.H. teaches us specifically here that nevertheless we coerce him to eat matza if he refuses.
