Do you or someone you know need health insurance?  Did you miss the annual open enrollment period for enrolling in a Qualified Health Plan?  (In 2021, the open enrollment period runs from Nov. 16, 2021 - Dec. 31, 2021). 

You may still have options to get coverage! 

  • Medicaid, Essential Plan and Child Health Plus enrollment is year-round! 

  • If you have experienced certain life events, you may qualify for a special enrollment period for a Qualified Health Plan.  Need help in figuring it all out?  There is FREE help available to you!

Contact a  Navigator or Community Health Advocates for help.
