QLE/SEP (Qualifying Life Event / Special Enrollment Period)

This is the only exception to the Open Enrollment rule.  If you have a QLE, you have a 60 day SEP to buy new individual health insurance or make changes to your existing plan.  Examples of QLE’s include marriage, divorce, birth of a child, moving to a new state, recent immigration to the US, loss of employer sponsored health insurance, COBRA running out, and more.  Please remember that ALL insurance companies are requiring paper documentation to prove your Qualifying Life Event (QLE).
