When Life Hands You Lemons

July 3, 2014

Life events come with a lot of changes and emotions — there’s no avoiding that. And while some life changes are unpleasant, you should know that you have health care options.

If you experience a death in the family, are going through a divorce, or are losing coverage you had through a job, you could qualify to sign up for a new health insurance plan or switch your current plan.

Here are the steps you should take within 60 days of a life event:

  1. Visit the Marketplace for your state and report a life event.
  2. Complete your application.
  3. Select a plan that’s right for your needs and your budget.
  4. Pay your monthly cost, or premium.

If you’re experiencing tough times in your life, health insurance can provide peace of mind and financial security so you can focus on moving forward. Ready to see if you qualify to get covered?
