 Special Enrollment Period

What is a special enrollment period?

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 qualify for a special enrollment period 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. Job-based plans must provide a special enrollment period of 30 days. Click on these links for more information.

Call Legal Aid of North Carolina if you want to meet with someone about whether you qualify to enroll during a special enrollment period. Their phone number is : 1- 855-733-3711


Thing to remember after you selected a plan:

  • Pay your monthly premiums
  • Schedule an appointment with your primary care doctor if you selected a new one
  • Update your insurance information when you go see a doctor
  • Pay your out-of-pocket expenses, like copays, when you visit the doctor
  • If you have a qualifying life event, e.g. you have a baby, get married, or divorced, go to to update your information
