Special Enrollment Period

The enrollment period for Marketplace Health Insurance is limited from November 1, 2016 – January 31, 2017. However, the federal government offers Special Enrollment Periods (SEPs). These are life-changing events that qualify individuals to enroll outside the designated enrollment period. Some of the common examples that qualify are: getting married, having a baby, adopting or fostering a child, losing health coverage, or moving to a different area. You are allowed 60 days to enroll in the Marketplace from the date of the life-changing event. If you miss that window, you will need to wait until the next open enrollment.
