Understanding When To Enroll

The Open Enrollment (OE) Period is a set period of time when most people can enroll in health insurance coverage. 

Outside the Open Enrollment Period, you can only enroll in health insurance coverage if you qualify for a Special Enrollment Period due to a qualifying life event.

Examples of qualifying life events include:

  • Marriage or divorce
  • Having a baby, adopting a child, or placing a child for adoption or foster care
  • Moving your residence to a new city that has a new rating area, gaining citizenship, released from incarceration
  • Losing other health coverage such as losing job-based coverage, the end of an individual policy plan year in 2015, COBRA expiration, aging off a parent’s plan, losing eligibility for Medicaid or CHIP, and similar circumstances.

It is important to note that voluntarily ending your coverage doesn’t qualify you for a Special Enrollment Period. 



Dates of enrollment (Open Enrollment Period (OEP)) - Nov. 1, 2015 to January 31,2016. Enroll or re-enroll by December 15, 2015 and your coverage will start on January 1, 2016. Enroll or re-enroll any time after that and your coverage will start two weeks after you enroll.
