Get Covered America in the RGV

June 12, 2014

Open enrollment for the Health Insurance Marketplace is Nov. 15-Feb. 15, but many families may qualify a special enrollment period outside of that time period. Financial help is available to ensure you can afford health coverage. Health insurance for children, such as CHIP and Medicaid, are available year-round. And in-person assistance is available to help you sign up.

Those who qualify for special enrollment include people who have had life-changing events, such as:

  • Having or adopting a child
  • Getting married
  • Turning 26 and aging off a parent’s plan
  • Becoming a citizen or documented immigrant
  • Moving to an area where the plans may be different
  • Getting out of prison
  • Having an error in your current plan
  • Certain income changes, job losses, or divorce that lead to losing coverage

Help is available to discuss your options for finding a health insurance plan that best fits your budget and your family’s needs. For more information about enrollment opportunities, or if you’d like to volunteer for the Get Covered American campaign, please contact:
