Special Enrollment Period Information

If you’ve had certain life events, such as losing health coverage, moving, getting married, having a baby, or adopting a child, you may be eligible for the Special Enrollment Period (SEP).

If you’re unsure if you qualify for coverage under the Special Enrollment Period, we encourage you to contact a Marketplace Navigator, to see if there is anything we can do to help. 

Marketplace Resources

The Affordable Care Act re-establishes consumers’ control over their health care through the Healthcare Marketplace. A new “Patient’s Bill of Rights” provides the American people with the tools and resources they need to make informed healthcare decisions under the law.

The primary goals of the law are as follows:

  • Make affordable health insurance available.
  • Expand the Medicaid program.
  • Reduce overall healthcare costs.

Health Insurance Marketplace

The Health Insurance Marketplace can help you get insured if you don’t have health insurance through work, Medicare, Medicaid, the Children’s Health Insurance Program (CHIP), or another source that provides qualified coverage.
