You Can Still Get Health Insurance!
Outside of open enrollment you still have options for getting Health Insurance Coverage. To purchase a Health Insurance Marketplace plan with the essential benefits outlined in ACA, you must have a qualifying event – similar to those for COBRA. If you have a qualifying event, you get what’s called a ‘Special Open Enrollment’ Period. SEP will last 60 days from the time of the qualifying event and allows you to shop and purchase Health Insurance with essential benefits of a Health Insurance Marketplace plan wherever you like. You are also eligible for the federal aid you can get during open enrollment. Some of the most common qualifying events include:
If you have moved or will be moving to an area where your current health coverage is no longer available or offered, this is considered a qualifying event.Compare Health Insurance Plans Now
Other Loss of Coverage?
Any loss of coverage, if you previously had coverage is considered a qualifying event such as losing health insurance that was provided by an employer, through job loss.Compare Health Insurance Plans Now

New Additions to the Family?
Congratulations! Since an addition to the family is a qualifying event for the to allow you a ‘Special Open Enrollment’, make sure your whole family stays healthy and your pocketbook protected with Health Insurance. Included in Health Insurance Marketplace plans, are wellness check-ups and vaccines for the children, advice nurses to call whenever you have a question about seeing the doctor as well as post-natal care or counseling if you’ve adopted. Make sure to shop around for the best deal and a pediatrician you like that is covered with your new plan. While there are a lot of transitions during this time period, this Special Open Enrollment period only lasts 60 days after the event, so don’t dawdle too long.Compare Health Insurance Plans Now
Your son/daughter turned 26?! You did your duty as a parent and made sure your child was covered when he/she broke his arm last winter and healthy when the common cold or flu required a doctor’s visit and prescriptions. Within 60 days of this now ‘big’ birthday, your child has to obtain his/her own health insurance. This means you also have the opportunity to shop for Health Insurance with all of the essential benefits and try to reward yourself with a little additional savings.Compare Health Insurance Plans Now
What if I don’t have a qualifying event?
For most, you will still be able to purchase a Short-term Health Insurance plan to hold you over until Open Enrollment begins Nov. 1, 2015. These plans are often cheaper than Healthcare.gov plans (before the subsidy), but similarly offer less coverage and protection. They are a great way to protect yourself.
