Affordable Care Act Update:
Coverage Opportunities After Open Enrollment
While the Marketplace Open Enrollment Period has ended, there are still opportunities for some Illinoisans to get health coverage or change their plan. Visit GetCoveredIllinois.gov to find out if:
• You qualify for a Special Enrollment Period (SEP) due to a "qualifying life event," like having a baby, getting married, losing employer coverage, or other reasons. You can apply any time during the year as long as it is within 60 days of the qualifying life event.
• You or a loved one qualifies for Medicaid, All Kids, or the Illinois Moms & Babies program. You can apply any time during the year. Remember, your children could qualify for coverage through All Kids even if you do not qualify for Medicaid.
• You qualify to purchase insurance from the Small Business Health Options Program (SHOP) if you own a small business or non-profit organization. You can apply any time but if you enroll by the 15th of the month your coverage can start as soon as the 1st of the following month.
For more information on your coverage options or to find FREE in-person assistance from a trained Navigator, visit GetCoveredIllinois.gov or call the Get Covered Illinois Help Desk toll-free at (866) 311-1119 from 8:00 a.m. to 8:00 p.m. seven days a week. Assistance is available in both English and Spanish.
