Per the Affordable Care Act, your last chance to enroll or change your benefit plan is January 31
. If you miss this deadline, the next opportunity won't come around until November 1, 2016. However, if you qualify for a Special Enrollment Event
, there is a limited window of time to enroll or change your benefit plan.
You qualify for a Special Enrollment Period (SEP) if you have a baby, get married, lose health coverage, move to a new state, or turn 26 and leave your parents' plan. For further details, visit healthcare.gov.
If you have questions about a Special Enrollment Event, changing your benefits, or enrolling in a new plan, feel free to contact us any time throughout the year, but don't forget you are locked into your current plan unless you have a Special Enrollment Event.
