Health Insurance options post open enrollment - Coastal Insurance Agency

You may qualify for a Special Enrollment Period if you or anyone in your household lost qualifying health coverage in the past 60 days OR expects to lose coverage in the next 60 days.

Changes in household size

You may qualify for a Special Enrollment Period if you or anyone in your household in the past 60 days:

  • Got married. Pick a plan by the last day of the month and your coverage can start the first day of the next month.

  • Had a baby, adopted a child, or placed a child for foster care. Your coverage can start the day of the event — even if you enroll in the plan up to 60 days afterward, and even if the event happened late in 2016.

  • Example: You had a baby December 17, 2016 and enroll in a 2016 plan February 8, 2017. The coverage applies to medical services from December 17 through December 31, 2016. Your 2017 plan would cover your expenses from January 1, 2017 on. Note: If the event happened in 2016, you’ll need to contact the Marketplace Call Center to enroll in 2016 coverage.

  • Got divorced or legally separated and lost health insurance. Note: Divorce or legal separation without losing coverage doesn’t qualify you for a Special Enrollment Period.

  • Death. You’ll be eligible for a Special Enrollment Period if someone on your Marketplace plan dies and as a result you’re no longer eligible for your current health plan.

Changes in residence

Household moves that qualify you for a Special Enrollment Period:

  • Moving to a new home in a new ZIP code or county

  • Moving to the U.S. from a foreign country or United States territory

  • A student moving to or from the place they attend school

  • A seasonal worker moving to or from the place they both live and work

  • Moving to or from a shelter or other transitional housing

Note: Moving only for medical treatment or staying somewhere for vacation doesn’t qualify you for an SEP.

Important: You must prove you had qualifying health coverage for one or more days during the 60 days before your move. You don’t need to provide proof if you’re moving from a foreign country or United States territory.

More qualifying changes

Other life circumstances that may qualify you for a Special Enrollment Period:

  • Changes that make you no longer eligible for Medicaid or the Children’s Health Insurance Program (CHIP)

  • Gaining membership in a federally recognized tribe or status as an Alaska Native Claims Settlement Act (ANCSA) Corporation shareholder

  • Becoming newly eligible for Marketplace coverage because you became a U.S. citizen

  • Leaving incarceration

  • AmeriCorps VISTA members starting or ending their service
