Special Enrollment

Special Enrollment

The Open Enrollment Period is closed. If you need coverage due to an eligible life event, you might qualify for Special Enrollment.

Special Enrollment

Life happens. You may suddenly need health insurance or to change your plan. Marriage, loss of a job or having a baby are just a few of the major events that may take place.

When these life events happen outside the Sign-Up Period, you can see if you qualify for coverage as part of Special Enrollment.

You must begin the application process within 60 days of the date of your qualifying life event. You can view estimated premiums using our calculator tool.
