Can I enroll in a health plan outside of the Open Enrollment Period?

In order to enroll in coverage outside of the Open Enrollment Period, you must qualify for a Special Enrollment Period, which requires that you have experienced a Life Change Event such as moving, getting married or having a baby. Please see the “What is a Life Change Event?” FAQ for more information on Life Change Events.

Note: You can enroll in Health First Colorado (Colorado’s Medicaid Program) or Child Health Plan Plus anytime. Open enrollment periods do not apply to these programs.
