Get Ready to Get Enrolled : 11/1/15 - 1/31/16



You can enroll now if you have a 

"Qualifying Life Event"

The Open Enrollment period for 2015 coverage is now closed.  If you haven't enrolled for health coverage by now you will not be able to buy Marketplace health coverage (Obamacare) until the next Open Enrollment period which begins November 1, 2015.

There are several situations that could allow to get coverage during the ¨Special Enrollment Period" such as a "Qualifying Life Event".  These include:

  • Getting married
  • Having a baby or adopting a child
  • Moving to a different area
  • Experiencing a error; issues with Medicaid qualification and/or other complicated issues
  • A loss of coverage due to divorce, death in family, or 26 yr old losing parents coverage.
  • Changes to your income
  • Changes in your immigration status

Medicaid and CHIP

There is no deadline - You can apply all year round!

You may qualify for free or low-cost care through Medicaid, based on income and family size.  New Jersey has expanded Medicaid to cover more people. You can apply for and enroll in Medicaid or the Children’s Health Insurance Program (CHIP) any time of year, since there is no limited enrollment period. If you qualify, your coverage can begin immediately. If you have Medicaid coverage, you’re considered covered under the health care law and don’t have to buy a Marketplace plan.
