States with state-based exchanges may issue extensions each year, some states have permanent extensions, and the federal government may issue extensions each year as well. Which extensions are offered is subject to change.

Below are the state-based deadlines for 2022 for marketplace coverage under the ACA and some notes on federal deadline extensions.

Please double-check the official state-based websites and the federal marketplace HealthCare.Gov to confirm extensions each year, as some extensions are subject to change at any time.

NOTE: The 2022 deadlines below are either permanent or projected based on last year’s open enrollment. We will update these deadlines as we get closer to open enrollment. Some deadlines may be extended for 2022 due to a federal rule change that extended open enrollment until Jan 15th for 2022.
