Getting health coverage outside Open Enrollment

Apply for Medicaid and CHIP

Medicaid and the Children’s Health Insurance Program (CHIP) provide free or low-cost health coverage to millions of individuals and families with limited income and disabilities.

  • In some states, Medicaid covers everybody below a certain income level.
  • You can apply for these programs any time. You can enroll during the Marketplace Open Enrollment period or any other time of year. If you qualify you can enroll immediately, any time of year.
