When to Enroll

The period for enrolling in a health plan, called Open Enrollment, ended on December 15, 2017. But if you've had a life event - such as a marriage, a new child, a move to a new area or you lost coverage through your job - you could still enroll in health insurance outside of Open Enrollment. This is a Special Enrollment Period, and you have several options when shopping for a new individual or family plan.
