What happens when Open Enrollment ends?
If the Open Enrollment Period has ended, you may still be able to enroll in a plan. Please read below to see if you have had a qualifying life event that makes you eligible to buy health insurance during a Special Enrollment Period.
What are qualifying life events?
You are eligible to enroll during a Special Enrollment Period if—in the past 60 days—you have:
- Gained or lost a dependent due to marriage, divorce, birth, adoption, or foster care placement.
- Lost minimum essential coverage, including losing a job-based plan, aging out of a parent’s coverage at 26, losing coverage through divorce, losing eligibility for Medicaid or CHIP.
- Permanently moved into the service area.
- Received a court order that affects insurance coverage (for example, divorce decree or custody order).
- Had a change in income that affects your eligibility for premium tax credits or cost-sharing reductions.
- Gained citizenship or lawful presence in the United States, or been released from incarceration.
