Open Enrollment 2022 is Over in Most States, But You May Still Have Options
Open enrollment 2022 ended on Jan 15th in most states. However, you may still have options even if you missed the deadline.
- California, Jew Jersey, New York, and DC all extended the deadline to Jan 31 2022.
- You may qualify for a special enrollment period due to a life event like losing other coverage, getting married, or having a baby.
- You can apply for Medicaid/CHIP 365 days a year if you meet the federal poverty level guidelines (special rules apply in some states).
- You can enroll in short-term coverage, which under the current rules can cover you for the entire year and work as primary coverage.
So, while if you didn’t get covered yet you may have missed your chance to get coverage with cost assistance on the marketplace for 2022, you may still have options!
