STILL NEED HEALTH COVERAGE FOR 2017?
The deadline for 2017 plans is over. Open Enrollment for 2018 runs November 1 - December 15, 2017. Coverage starts January 1, 2018.
If you still want coverage for the rest of 2017:
- See if you qualify for a Special Enrollment Period due to a life event like losing other coverage, getting married, or having a baby.
- See if you qualify for Medicaid or the Children’s Health Insurance Program (CHIP). You can apply for these programs any time.
For most people, the deadline to enroll in a 2017 health insurance plan has passed. But you may still be able to enroll in health coverage for the rest of 2017 two ways: with a Special Enrollment Period or through Medicaid or the Children’s Health Insurance Program (CHIP).
If you experience certain types of life changes — like losing health coverage, getting married, or having a baby — you may qualify for a Special Enrollment Period to enroll in a Marketplace plan for the rest of 2017.
If you don’t qualify to enroll with a Special Enrollment Period, you’ll have to wait until the next Open Enrollment Period November 1 – December 15, 2017 to enroll in a health plan for 2018.
