Life change? You may be eligible for health coverage for the rest of 2020
If you recently lost health coverage, got married, had a baby, or experienced another life event, you may qualify for a Special Enrollment Period to enroll in or change Marketplace coverage for the rest of 2020.
What counts as a life event?
There are 4 basic types of qualifying life events:
- Loss of health coverage, like losing your job-based or student health plan
- Changes in household, like getting married or divorced, having a baby, or adopting a child
- Changes in residence, like moving to a different ZIP code or state
- Other changes that impact your income or status, like gaining membership in a federally recognized tribe
