Special Enrollment Period

Qualifying events allow you to enroll in or change health plans

Certain life changes may qualify you for a Special Enrollment Period, where you can apply for marketplace health coverage or change your current marketplace coverage. These life changes are known as qualifying events, and they can happen at any time outside of the annual open enrollment period (usually November-January).

Examples of qualifying life events include:

Having a baby, adopting a child, or adding an adult child as a dependent

Marriage, divorce, or separation

Once you’ve had a qualifying event, your Special Enrollment Period lasts for 60 days after that event. For instance: If you get married on May 1, you have until June 29 to enroll in a Washington Health Benefit Exchange (WAHBE) plan.

See the WAHBE website for more information on Special Enrollment Periods and qualifying events.
