Special Enrollment Period Details:
Since all of Florida’s counties were impacted by Hurricanes this season, consumers must need only verbally attest that they were impacted in and/or relocated to one of those counties due to living in an area that was provided assistance by FEMA due to Hurricane Maria or Hurricane Irma. Consumers are not required to have had, or show proof of insurance for 60 days prior to the SEP. Documentation to support your attestation will not be required
As with all Health Insurance Marketplace plans, financial assistance may be available. Consumers who receive financial assistance will be required to file US Federal income taxes for 2018. For more information, call Covering Florida at 877-813-9115
