Special Enrollment Period
Special Enrollment Period is a time outside of the open enrollment period during which you and your family may be able to sign up for health coverage. You may qualify for a special enrollment period up to 60 days following certain life events that involve a change in family status (for example, marriage or birth of a child) or loss of other health coverage. Job-based plans must provide a special enrollment period of 30 days.
