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

Woman thinking

Thinking about moving, getting married or having a baby? When you make big decisions in life, you may also become eligible for Marketplace coverage outside of Open Enrollment through a Special Enrollment Period.

Use our screener now to find out if you qualify for a Special Enrollment Period.

If you qualify for a Special Enrollment Period to change plans or enroll for the first time, you’ll have 60 days from the life event to enroll. After you report life changes to the Marketplace, you’ll get a new eligibility notice that will explain if you qualify for a Special Enrollment Period and lower costs.
