Can I get coverage after Open Enrollment?

Yes! You may qualify for a Special Enrollment Period if you’ve had a big life change or one coming up. Some examples:

  • You’ve lost your health plan
  • You’re getting married
  • You’re having a baby
  • You’re moving to a new state

These qualifying life events — and others — let you sign up for a health plan outside the ACA Open Enrollment Period.

Life changes that qualify you for special enrollment 

The top insurance terms you’ll want to know


Insurance isn’t all that complicated. It just feels that way at first. Let’s go over the top terms you might see during enrollment.

Deductible

This is the amount you pay before your health plan starts to pay for some or all of your costs.

Coinsurance

This is a percentage that you pay after you’ve met your deductible. For example, if your plan covers 80% of the cost for physical therapy, you will pay 20%.

Copay

This is a fixed amount that you typically pay at the time you get care. For example, you might pay $40 when you see your doctor.

Out-of-pocket maximum

This is a cap on your plan costs. Once you have paid this amount through deductibles, copays and coinsurance, your plan pays 100% of all covered costs for the rest of the plan year.

Network

This is a group of providers — like doctors and clinics — that have a contract with a health plan. When you see a provider in your health plan’s network you get special, lower rates.

Referral

This is an authorization from your doctor, written on paper or sent electronically, to see another doctor or for a specific health service.
