Qualifying events can make you eligible to sign up for health insurance

Are you interested in signing up for a Texas health insurance plan, but not sure if you’re able to? For most Texans open enrollment is closed; however you can qualify for Marketplace Insurance Coverage if you have had some major changes in your life.

Open enrollment for Marketplace Insurance Coverage closed at the end of March, but under certain circumstances you can still enroll in a Texas medical plan. Known as Qualifying Life Events, these changes will make you eligible for a Special Enrollment Period. Qualifying Life Events include moving to a different coverage area, certain changes in income and changes in family size, such as adopting a child or getting a divorce.   

If you’ve had a major change in your life and need to enroll or make changes to your Texas health insurance plan, call us, there may be options. Short-term coverage is also available if you need coverage but have not had a Qualifying Life Event. While short-term insurance will not fulfill your responsibilities under the Affordable Care Act, it will help you pay for what can be devastating medical bills.
