Born in ’89

June 10, 2015

You might have at least one thing in common with Taylor Swift.

If you were born in 1989 (#BornIn89) like Taylor Swift, you’re turning 26 this year. And if you’ve been on a parent’s health insurance plan, your coverage might be coming to an end.

But don’t worry — shake it off because you’ll have new options in the health insurance marketplace. You can stay covered, and you’ll never miss a beat.

Here’s how it works:

  • Your health insurance might stop at the end of the month you turn 26.
  • Or it might stop at the end of this year (or later) — check with your plan for more details.
  • After your coverage ends, you’ll have 60 days to sign up for your very own plan through the marketplace! What you’re looking for has been here the whole time.

When you’re ready to sign up, you can get started online OR find free, local help with the process. They’ve got a blank space on the application — and you can write your name.

We know change is hard. And needing to get new health insurance can totally be intimidating. Are we out of the woods yet?

But you have options, you could get help paying for your new health insurance, and you can get help applying — you’ve got this! Are we in the clear yet? In the clear yet? Good.

So, remember: Having health insurance will never go out of style, even after your 26th birthday. Just say yes.
