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

To buy a health insurance plan outside of the Open Enrollment Period, you must qualify for a Special Enrollment Period. Having a Life Change Event, such as losing health insurance coverage from a job, moving, getting married or having a baby, may allow for a Special Enrollment Period. 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.
