What is a health insurance special enrollment period?

  • Health insurance is typically only available during the open enrollment window established by the Affordable Care Act (ACA). When you experience a qualifying life event, the special enrollment period is a short window of time for you to sign up for health insurance. From the date of the event, you generally have 60 days in which you can buy health coverage that fits your changing needs. If you miss the deadline, you may have to wait until the next open enrollment period to get insurance coverage. Don’t wait. Call 1-888-492-3446 to get details.
