The Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services on Jan. 27 announced a marketplace special enrollment period (SEP) for qualified individuals and their families who become ineligible for Medicaid or CHIP coverage once the continuous enrollment requirement ends and states return to normal Medicaid operations.
The SEP will allow individuals and families in marketplaces served by HealthCare.gov to enroll in marketplace health insurance coverage outside of the annual open enrollment period. State-based marketplaces that operate their own eligibility and enrollment platforms also have the option to offer this SEP for their populations.
The SEP runs from March 31, 2023, to July 31, 2024. Eligible individuals and their families can apply before existing Medicaid or CHIP coverage ends.
