I am currently living overseas but plan to repatriate in July. Can I join Obamacare before the February 15th deadline and defer payment and coverage until July?


Answer

When you move back in July you'll trigger a Special Enrollment Period of 60 days. That starts 30 days before you move so you can be covered when you land.

If you do not know the address you will be living at, can you still enroll 30 days before you move back to the US? In other words, if you know you will be moving back to a certain city and state from overseas, but you have to move back 1st before you will have a known address where you will be renting in that certain city/state, can you still enroll 30 days before you move back to the US?

From what I understand you need a physical address to enroll. So the answer I think, rather oddly, is “you need an address and can’t enroll before you have one.”

With that said, I would call the marketplace and check if there is a work around.
