If you recently lost health insurance coverage, you may be able to enroll in Marketplace coverage.
Loss of health insurance that may be subject to special coverage periods
- Loss of employment insurance: You may be eligible if your employer stops providing health insurance or if you quit a job where you were covered by health insurance (even if you were terminated or fired by choice).
- Loss of personal health insurance: If you’re no longer eligible for student health insurance or your Marketplace plan has been discontinued, you may qualify.
- Disqualification for Medicaid or Children’s Health Insurance Program (CHIP): If you lose eligibility because your income changes and you no longer qualify for Medicaid, or if your child reaches the age when CHIP is no longer available, you may qualify.
- Loss of Medicare eligibility: If you’re no longer eligible for free Medicare Part A, you can qualify.
- LOSS OF FAMILY PLAN COVERAGE: You may be eligible if you turn 26 and are no longer eligible for a parent’s plan or if you lost health insurance through your spouse due to divorce, legal separation, or death in the family.
