Health Insurance Special Enrollment | Ambetter

Can You Get Health Insurance Today?

If you’ve experienced a Qualifying Life Event, or a change in your insurance status, you may qualify for insurance during a Special Enrollment period. This means you can enroll or change your health insurance plan outside the regular open enrollment period.

Most special enrollment periods last 60 days from the date of the qualifying life event to enroll. Learn more about health insurance special enrollment and see if you are eligible for Ambetter insurance.
