Coverage is Good Medicine
Open Enrollment for 2014 coverage is over. But you may still have options to get health coverage:
Special Enrollment Period: Outside the Open Enrollment period, you can enroll in a private health plan through the Marketplace only if you qualify for a special enrollment period. Learn more.
Medicaid or CHIP: You may qualify for free or low-cost care through Medicaid based on income and family size. Some states have expanded Medicaid to cover more people. You can apply for and enroll in Medicaid or CHIP any time of year. There’s no limited enrollment period for either Medicaid or the Children’s Health Insurance Program (CHIP). If you qualify, your coverage can begin immediately. Learn more.
