In most cases, you can only sign up for a health insurance plan during the open enrollment period. But if you’ve had a major life change lately, such as losing a job, you may qualify for the Special Enrollment Period.
Qualifying Life Events take in:
If you missed the last open enrollment period and don’t qualify for the Special Enrollment Period, you may still have options.
