How can I get health coverage now that Open Enrollment is over?
Open Enrollment for a 2016 plan is over, but you may still be able to enroll in 2016 health insurance 2 ways:
- With a Special Enrollment Period (SEP) — like if you lose your health insurance, or have certain other life changes. Not sure you qualify for an SEP? Answer a few questions to find out.
- You can also apply for Medicaid and the Children’s Health Insurance Program (CHIP) any time and can enroll immediately if you’re eligible.
If I don’t qualify for an SEP, Medicaid, or CHIP, when can I enroll next?
- The Open Enrollment Period for 2017 coverage is November 1, 2016 — January 31, 2017. Sign up for emails to get deadline reminders and other important information.
What should I do if I get a notice asking me for documents to verify something on my application (like my income), or my eligibility for a Special Enrollment Period?
- To avoid losing your health insurance and any savings you’ve been getting, you must submit document copies by the deadline in your notice. Learn more here.
