What is Special Enrollment?
The Special Enrollment period for the Healthcare Marketplace is the rest of the year after Open Enrollment is over. In most cases, applicants for health insurance during Special Enrollment must meet at least one qualifying factor. However, COVID-19 has made it fairly certain that anyone who has been impacted by the pandemic may apply during Special Enrollment. Additionally, states with their own healthcare marketplaces may have qualifying events that go beyond the federal marketplace standards.
For example, California imposes a tax penalty on its residents who are not covered by health insurance. If you are a California resident who received such a tax penalty, you are eligible to enroll through Covered California during the Special Enrollment period.
