Clients who are eligible for a Special Enrollment Period can enroll in a new Marketplace health insurance plan. Or they can change plans outside of the standard Open Enrollment period.
Special Enrollment Periods are triggered by life events, such as:
- Moving to another state
- Having a baby
- Losing other health coverage, like a lost job
- A change in Medicaid eligibility
- Certain types of errors that may have occurred during the application process
This provides an overview of the life events and special circumstances that may qualify them for a Special Enrollment Period. As well as information about what to do if they think they are eligible.
