What is an Open Enrollment Period?

An Open Enrollment Period is the period of time when you can sign up for, or make changes to, a health insurance plan. There is one Open Enrollment Period every year for Connect for Health Colorado and other health insurance companies doing business in Colorado. The next Open Enrollment Period will begin on November 1, 2018 for coverage that starts January 1, 2019.

You must have a Life Change Event that would qualify you for a Special Enrollment Period to buy a health insurance plan outside of the Open Enrollment Period. Please see the “What is a Life Change Event?” FAQ for more information.
