Learn about special enrollment periods and how to qualify for one
What, exactly, is a special enrollment period, or SEP?
SEPs, which are triggered by major life changes like getting married or having a baby, allow you to change your health plan or apply for a new one outside of open enrollment. You’ll need to submit proof of the life change, also known as a qualifying life event, within 60 days of the date it happened.
