Open Enrollment is the time period when you can enroll or renew or change your health insurance plan. It begins November 1st and ends on December 15th each year. If Open Enrollment is over, you may still be able to enroll in health insurance during a Special Enrollment period. This is a time outside the annual Open Enrollment period where you can sign up for health insurance (if you don’t already have insurance coverage).
To qualify, you would need to experience a Qualifying Life Event that causes a change in your insurance status. Visit our Get Covered page for a list of qualifying life events.
Learn more about Special Enrollment at our Become a Member page.
