Throughout the year, qualifying events allow individuals to add, drop and change health insurance coverage. The time around these events is called a Special Enrollment period.
There are many life events that qualify you to change coverage, from marriage to a new baby to a loss of existing coverage. Find a full list of events below.
When you apply for health coverage during a special enrollment period, you will be asked to provide documentation of your qualifying life event. For example, a marriage certificate or birth certificate.
NOTE: If you get insurance through your employer, please inform your benefits administrator of your life event.
