Open enrollment is the period within the year that people can enroll in a health insurance plan. Open enrollment for the Health Insurance Marketplace runs annually from early November to mid-December, with coverage starting in the New Year. In 2021, You can enroll in Marketplace health coverage February 15 through May 15 due to the coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19) emergency.

Depending on your Special Enrollment Period type, you may have 60 days before or 60 days following the event to enroll in a plan. If you miss your Special Enrollment Period window, you may have to wait until the next Open Enrollment Period to apply.

That is a million more people than signed up for ACA health insurance last year. (Enrollment is closed on, but still open on state marketplaces in California, Washington, D.C., New Jersey, New York and Rhode Island until January 31.)

"Enrollment at is up a whopping 50% since President Biden took office," Ambassador Susan Rice, domestic policy advisor to the president, told reporters on Wednesday. Among the enrollees were 3.6 million people who were new to the marketplace, she added, people who "will now have the peace of mind that health insurance brings."

"We walked through the whole process with Jorge. He helped us pick a plan that worked for us. It actually ended up working out better to split our insurance," she says. "It will end up saving us about $9,000 with childbirth and all of that. I cried when we found out that we were going to be saving a lot of money."

Biden administration health officials don't have much time to celebrate the success of open enrollment because a huge challenge looms: How to prevent millions of people from becoming uninsured as pandemic Medicaid rules sunset?

After the COVID-19 public health emergency declaration in 2020, states weren't allowed to require people to fill out forms confirming they were still eligible. As a result, new people enrolled, but no one disenrolled, and the program swelled. About 90.9 million people now have Medicaid or CHIP, the Children's Health Insurance Program.

Insurance you get through your job or an association is called group insurance. You must be a member of the group to get coverage. Most people get health insurance through their job, but not all employers offer it.

The open enrollment period for marketplace and individual plans is from November 1 to December 15 each year. You can buy at other times only if you lose your coverage or have a life change. Life changes include things like getting married or divorced, having a baby, or adopting a child.

Federal law sets limits on the amount you pay out of pocket in a plan year. Some plans have lower out-of-pocket limits. After you reach the limit, you don't have to pay copayments or coinsurance for the rest of the plan year. You still have to pay premiums, though. A plan year is the 12-month period from the date your coverage started. For instance, if your coverage started on September 1, your plan year lasts until August 31.

These types of health insurance provide only limited coverage. Companies selling them can deny you coverage or charge you more if you have a preexisting condition. They also usually limit the amount they will pay for your care.

Coverages vary by plan. Coverage requirements are different for plans you get at work and those you buy directly from an insurance company.
