How do I know if I can update my coverage?
If you’ve gone through a life change, you can enroll during a Special Enrollment Period. Some common life changes that let you change your plan are getting married, having or adopting a child, changing or losing your job or moving out of your coverage area.
Is there anything I need to do before I find a new affordable health plan?
If you’re updating your 2024 plan during Special Enrollment, it’s helpful to know a few pieces of information. Think about any upcoming health care needs you might want to plan for and know your household income; you may qualify for monthly savings.
You might need to provide “proof” of your life event and when it happened. You could use something like a marriage license or official letter from a new employer. Not all life events require you to submit documents. Find the documents you might need to submit when you enroll.
