New Special Enrollment Period from Feb. 15 through May 15
In response to the COVID-19 Public Health Emergency, on Jan. 28 the Biden-Harris Administration announced a special enrollment period (SEP) from Feb. 15 through May 15. This new enrollment window allows individuals and families to apply for Marketplace (on-exchange) coverage. Main features:
Anyone who is eligible for a Marketplace plan can apply for this SEP, including those who have existing ACA coverage.
The effective date of coverage for this SEP will be the first day of the month following plan selection.
Our BCBSTX on-exchange plans will be available on HealthCare.gov for this SEP.
We’re evaluating options to make this SEP available off exchange and will provide additional information as it’s available.
