Special Enrollment Period Due to Coronavirus

If you were affected by income changes, reduced hours, or layoffs due to COVID-19, you may be eligible for coverage through Covered California.

You can also apply if you didn’t know about the new state penalty for not having health insurance or new financial help available. You are also eligible to enroll or change your plan if you had a qualifying life event including loss of coverage, marriage, having a baby, or a recent move to California.

When Can I Apply for Covered CA?

Anyone can apply during Open Enrollment, which takes place from October 15th through January 15th each year. There may also be other Open Enrollment periods announced by Covered CA.

If you miss Open Enrollment, you can still apply for Covered CA if you have a Qualifying Life Event (QLE). Examples of QLE’s are:

  • Loss of health coverage (increased income resulting in losing eligibility for Medi-Cal)
  • Changes in household (getting married, having a baby)
  • Changes in residence (moving to California from out of state)
  • Becoming a U.S. Citizen
