The period during which you can renew or sign up for a health plan through the Marketplace health insurance is known as the Open Enrollment Period.

Open Enrollment for 2022 coverage begins on November 15, 2021—only a few months away.

Things To Know About Open Enrollment Period

Right here are five crucial things to know about the Open Enrollment Period:

i) The 2022 Open Enrollment period lasts from November 1, 2021, to December 15, 2021.

ii) To use coverage beginning January 1, 2022, you must register for health insurance by December 15, 2021.

iii) If you don’t sign up for a health plan by December 15, 2021, the only way you’ll be able to get health insurance through the Marketplace in 2021 is if you qualify for a Special Enrollment Period (SEP). Moreover, if you have a qualifying life event, such as marriage, adoption, the birth of a baby, or loss of insurance coverage, you may be eligible.

iv) You can apply for CHIP (Child Health Insurance Program) or Medicaid at any time of the year. If you meet specific requirements for this program, you can enroll right away.

v) You can preview 2022 health plans and their estimated costs before you apply.
