I am pregnant. Do I have to wait until I give birth to enroll my child or can I enroll her in preparation for her birth?
You have a 60 day special enrollment period starting the moment your baby is born to add your child to a Marketplace family plan or to switch to a family plan. Having a baby is considered a "qualifying life event".
Enroll up to 30 days before a qualifying life event for coverage starting soon or shortly after the day of the event. In some cases there may be a gap between the qualifying life event and the start date of coverage. Typically coverage doesn't start until the first months premiums is paid.
Call HealthCare.Gov for specific directions.
Call to start or finish an application, compare plans, enroll or ask a question.
