Health Coverage Open Enrollment 2015

The Health Insurance Marketplace, more commonly known as “Obamacare” is a new way to find quality health coverage.  You can compare plans based on price, benefits, and other features important to you side by side online.  The Marketplace will also tell you if you qualify for free or low cost coverage.

You can generally buy Marketplace Health Insurance only during the annual Open Enrollment period (new dates to be announced).  To buy Marketplace insurance outside the Open Enrollment period, you must qualify for a special enrollment due to a qualifying life event, experienced complex issues relating to the marketplace, or loss of other health coverage.

Apply with a Special Enrollment:  You can still buy private insurance through the Marketplace if you have a qualifying life event or a complex situation related to applying in the Marketplace.  You generally have 60 days following life events that involved a change in family status or loss of other health care coverage to apply.

What is a Qualifying Life Event?

Moving from another state

Marriage

Divorce

Having a baby

Certain changes in income

What is a complex situation?

Enrollment error

Display errors on healthcare.gov

Misconduct by an application assistor that resulted in not getting enrolled in a plan

Unexpected circumstances that kept you from enrolling

Call 773 995-6300 and ask to speak to our Patient Services Representative for more information about Qualifying Life Events.  Our Certified Application Counselors and Enrollment Specialists can help you enroll for a private plan if you qualify for a Special Enrollment.
