What is a Special Enrollment Period?
Under the Affordable Care Act you can typically sign up for a health insurance plan only during the annual Open Enrollment which is a period of time determined by the federal government.
However, if you missed the Open Enrollment period for this year you may still qualify to enroll in
a health insurance plan! You’ll need to have a “qualifying life event” to be able to enroll in a new
major medical health plan or change your existing coverage. In most cases, a qualifying life event
will trigger a 60-day Special Enrollment Period (SEP) during which you can change your existing coverage or apply for a new plan.

More about Special Enrollment Periods
If you have a qualifying event that triggers a special enrollment period, we recommend that you have documentation of your qualifying life event with you when you apply for new coverage – whether you apply online or offline.
You should also be aware that you’re not likely to qualify for a Special Enrollment Period if you voluntarily cancel your existing coverage or lose it because you didn’t pay your premiums or other bills.
