Grab Health Insurance Information at our May Events

The weather is warm, grass is sprouting, and your calendar is filling up. Make sure to include health insurance on your to-do list if your income or household is going to change.

Although open enrollment for Maryland Health Connection’s private health plans is only Nov. 1-Dec. 15, it’s important to know that you can enroll in Medicaid programs any time of year.

If you’ve recently had a major life event, such as a change in income or loss of health coverage, you may be eligible for a special enrollment period (SEP) through Maryland Health Connection.

These life events include:

  • Getting married or divorced,
  • Having a child, adopting a child, or placing a child for adoption or in foster care,
  • Moving to or from Maryland, and some moves within the state,
  • Turning 26 years old if you are enrolled in coverage through your parent’s plan,
  • Change of citizenship or immigration status, and more.
