The Open Enrollment period is November 1st to December 15th for plans beginning January 1, 2020. If you do not elect coverage during Open Enrollment, you may not qualify for coverage in 2020 without a Special Enrollment Period.
A Special Enrollment Period is a time outside of the Open Enrollment period during which you and your family have a right to sign up for health coverage. In the Marketplace, you generally qualify for a special enrollment period of 60 days following certain life events that involve a change in family status (for example, marriage or birth of a child) or loss of other health coverage. If you don’t have a special enrollment period, you can’t buy insurance through the Marketplace until the next Open Enrollment period. Job-based plans generally allow special enrollment periods of 60 days.
If you are looking for 2019 coverage, you may still be able to enroll if you qualify for a Special Enrollment Period. To find out if you qualify for a Special Enrollment Period, please go to the following website, https://www.healthcare.gov/glossary/special-enrollment-period/, call CMS at 1-800-318-2596, or you may call Vantage’s Member Services department toll-free at (844) 833-7505, Monday – Friday, 8:00 a.m. - 8:00 p.m. for assistance.
