Changes that qualify for a Special Enrollment Period
You faced a serious medical condition or natural disaster that kept you from enrolling. For example:
Your state Medicaid or CHIP agency determined that you weren’t eligible for Medicaid or CHIP after Open Enrollment ended
You gained a new dependent or became a dependent of someone else due to a court order
You're a survivor of domestic abuse/violence or spousal abandonment and want to enroll in your own health plan separate from your abuser or abandoner. Your dependents may be eligible too.
You believe you received an incorrect eligibility determination or an incorrect coverage effective date and file an appeal with the Marketplace. If the ruling goes in your favor, you’ll be given the option to enroll in or change plans either retroactively or prospectively.
