Each year, you make important decisions about your health insurance coverage. You do the research, do the math, and sign up for the plan that’s best for you and your family. Maybe that’s individual coverage purchased through a local insurance agent or online. Or, maybe you’re covered by a plan offered through a job. No matter how you buy your health insurance, once you sign up, you’re locked in until open enrollment begins again the next year.
But, life happens and situations change. We understand that. In the health insurance industry, these important life changes are called “qualifying life events”. When you experience a qualifying life event, you become eligible for a special enrollment period, allowing you to sign up for coverage or update your current plan. This is your chance to make necessary changes or to choose new or different coverage based on your needs.
