Having a major life event? You may qualify for a Special Enrollment Period

Life change? You may be able to get health coverage for 2015

Thinking about moving, getting married, having a baby, or changing jobs? When you make big decisions in life, you may be eligible to buy or change Health Insurance Marketplace coverage outside the yearly Open Enrollment Period.

If you’ve had a qualifying major life event, you have 60 days from the life event to enroll in coverage. You can apply or change plans online or by phone. Before you apply, use this checklist (PDF) to gather everything you need before you call or log in.
