2019 Individual & Family Health Insurance Open Enrollment

(In or Out of Covered California): October 15 to January 15

The only time that you can buy an insurance plan outside of open enrollment is to qualify for a Special Enrollment Period (SEP). Some examples of Qualifying events are:

  • Losing your job
  • Moving to a new state
  • Getting married or divorced
  • Becoming a widow or widower
  • Aging off your parent’s plan
  • Having a new baby

Note: These are only a few of the most common examples of Qualifying Events.

Note: You won’t be eligible for a SEP if you lost your previous health plan because you failed to pay monthly premiums or if you voluntarily cancel coverage.
