Special Enrollment Period
If you have experienced a qualifying life event you may be eligible for special enrollment into a health plan – one outside of the usual open enrollment period. Examples of qualifying life events are loss of employer-sponsored coverage, a recent move, being newly married, and having a baby. This special enrollment period lasts 60 days from the date of the qualifying life event. When enrolling for coverage, you will need to provide the qualifying life event and the date of the event. Note: If 60 days pass and you do not sign up for health coverage, you will have to wait until the next open enrollment period.
Enroll in a Plan
Compare costs and plan benefits, read about coverage details, then enroll. Three primary things to know when enrolling in a health plan:
- With an HMO, you use in-network providers to get your care. Find a list of providers here.
- Preventive services are covered under a metal tiered plan (gold, silver, bronze), yet not always covered 100%. Some services you get from your doctor are subject to copay, coinsurance, and in most cases, a deductible. Learn more about health plan basics here.
- To get personalized help by phone, call WHA’s member services: 916.563.2250 or 888.563.2250 toll-free. They are available Monday through Friday 8 a.m. to 6 p.m.
