If you lose your health coverage, you may be eligible for a Special Enrollment today. Our health insurance team can assist you with applying for the Special Enrollment, applying for a subsidy, and selecting a health plan that meets your needs.
Do these reasons apply to you?
- Losing job-based coverage for any reason, including resigning, being laid off, or getting fired.
- Losing coverage due to divorce or household changes, such as a death in the household.
- Policy/plan year ending (for a plan or policy you bought yourself).
- COBRA coverage running out (or your former employer stopping contributions to your COBRA coverage, requiring you to pay the full cost).
- Aging off a parent’s plan by turning 26 years old.
- Losing eligibility for Medicaid or CHIP (Children’s Health Insurance Program).
Note: Voluntarily giving up coverage or losing it because you didn’t pay your premium doesn’t count. You also don’t qualify if you drop COBRA coverage before the COBRA coverage runs out, though you can end COBRA and enroll in Marketplace coverage during the Open Enrollment, or if you qualify for another Special Enrollment Period.
