If you’re getting married soon or were recently married, it may be a good idea to think through your health insurance plan options. Of course, you’ve probably got a million things on your mind. From flowers and cakes to limo’s and honeymoons. You don’t want to spend a single second more than you have to thinking about something like health insurance. The good news is that we can make the process quick and painless!
Your Marriage is a Qualifying Event
Generally, the only time you can enroll in a new health plan is during an open enrollment period. This means the earliest your coverage could take effect is January 1st of the upcoming year!
Luckily, your marriage is considered a “qualifying life event.” That means that within sixty days of being married you can apply for coverage even if we aren’t currently in an open enrollment period.
So, if you or your new spouse are without health coverage, or would like to make a change, getting covered can be as simple as taking ten minutes to get a quote, select your new health plan, and submit your application. If you’re uncertain about your needs or have any other questions, please give us a call. We have an amazing team of Covered California Certified Agents who would love to help you with your enrollment.
