Gained Citizenship or Lawful Presence
For those who have recently became U.S. citizens or gained lawful presence, it’s probably a good time to think about your health insurance options. Even though you may be in a busy season of life, the last thing you want is to get stuck paying out of pocket for some unexpected medical expenses. Typically the only time you can enroll in a new health plan or change health plans is during an open enrollment period.
Legal Status Change & Special Enrollment
Fortunately, if your legal status change occurred in the last sixty days, you qualify for special enrollment, for Covered California. Because you have what is considered a qualifying life event, you have the opportunity to enroll even if we’re not currently in an open enrollment period. Also, you’re not alone. We have a dedicated team of Covered California Certified Agents who would love to help you find the perfect plan for your needs.
