New Special Enrollment Period for Health Insurance Marketplace

Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the president issued an Executive Order extending open enrollment for health insurance under the Affordable Care Act (ACA) from February 15, 2021 – August 15, 2021.

During the Special Enrollment Period (SEP), Americans who are uninsured for any reason may purchase health insurance through the ACA marketplace. Individuals who are already insured through the ACA but would like to change their current plan may do so at this time as well.
