Special Open Enrollment

You can apply for a health plan outside open enrollment, or make changes to your current plan, if you’ve experienced a major life change, usually within the last 60 days. Find the best plan for your needs and budget and see if you qualify for financial assistance. Visit the links below to get started!

How to Apply

When Can I Apply?

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
