About Special Enrollment

Individuals and families who experience a qualifying life event can enroll in a Covered California health insurance plan outside of the annual open enrollment period, which is usually from November through January each year. This is called special enrollment.

In most cases, you have 60 days after the date of a qualifying life event to enroll or change your existing plan. If you know ahead of time when you will lose your health insurance, you have an additional 60 days to enroll before that date to prevent any gaps in coverage.
