Need 2018 coverage outside of open enrollment?
You can still get health coverage if you qualify for a Special Enrollment Period due to a qualifying life event — like getting married, losing other coverage, or having a baby. Find out if you qualify.
Don't qualify for a special enrollment period? We've got you covered.
Short Term Coverage Apply for a short-term plan for the part of the rest of the year. These plans are less expensive than many individual ACA plans but do not cover some of the essential health benefits such as maternity coverage. These plans are your best option if you don't currently qualify for a special enrollment period.
Medicaid & CHIP – apply any time
There’s no limited enrollment period for Medicaid or the Children’s Health Insurance Program (CHIP). You can apply any time.
Health Insurance Exemptions For 2019
The individual mandate was repealed for 2019. Meaning, Americans without health coverage in 2019 will not be subject to a tax penalty. However, anyone without health insurance in 2018 may still have to pay up come tax season.
