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.
When you experience a qualifying life event, you can choose from the same major medical health insurance options that are available from GoHealth during open enrollment.

When you buy coverage during a special enrollment period, the effective date of coverage depends on when you enroll.
If you sign up by the 15th day of a month, coverage generally begins on the first day of the next month. If you sign up after the 15th, coverage begins on the first day of the following month.
GoHealth experts are ready to assist you with answering all your questions.
Don’t miss your chance to get the coverage you need. Once the 60 day window for your qualifying event ends, you will have to wait until the next yearly enrollment period to buy a plan (unless you have another qualifying event).
