Report a Change

Life changes. Your coverage can change with it. Certain events and circumstances may qualify you for a better plan or more savings. Let us know when your situation changes to get the right plan, right when you need it.

Special Enrollment Periods

Some life events let you sign up for a health plan outside of open enrollment. This is called a special enrollment period. Qualifying life events include job loss, birth, adoption, marriage and more. You have 60 days from the event to apply for a special enrollment period.

Changes of Income

Changes of Coverage

Sometimes you lose or gain health insurance unexpectedly. This can include any coverage gained or lost from your job, family members and more.

Let us know if this happens to you. Oftentimes, you qualify for a special enrollment period when your coverage changes. This means you can sign up for a new plan or switch to a plan that better fits your situation.

Fill out the Special Enrollment Questionnaire if you have gained or lost any of the following:

  • Coverage from a job or employer
  • Coverage from a public program (such as Apple Health or Medicare)
  • COBRA coverage
  • Coverage from a family member or other household member
