ObamaCare COVID Special Enrollment Extended to August 15th 2021

CMS has extended the Affordable Care Act (ObamaCare) special enrollment period by three months to August 15 due to COIVD 19.

The new dates are

  • February 15, 2021: Special Enrollment 2021 begins.
  • Aug 15, 2021: Special Enrollment 2021 ends.

NOTE: Some states have unique deadlines and rules.

Everyone who doesn’t have insurance qualifies, and many people will qualify for assistance based on income or based on being on unemployment for filing for it.

You also qualify to enroll in special enrollment if you had a qualifying life event and in Medicaid or CHIP if your income is low enough.

Contact the marketplace today to see if you qualify.

TIP: This is the second time enrollment was extended this year.
