Moving To A Different State | Special Enrollment

Moving to a different state will qualify you for Special Enrollment.

There may be a lot of changes to be taken care of such as enrolling the kids to a different school, having a new line of work and of course, fixing all that concerns the household. However, with all these important things, you should never forget to manage your health insurance. It’s a fact that when you move to a different address, your health insurance won’t move with you. Fortunately, the Special Enrollment Period (SEP) will let you purchase a health plan outside the Open Enrollment Period.

What documents do you need to fully enroll?

When you qualify for Special Enrollment, you may be asked to show several documents to confirm your eligibility for SEP. You may pick and apply for a plan of your choice then submit your documents afterwards. This means you have 30 days to provide the documents after you applied for health insurance. If you qualify for SEP because of moving to a different state, then you need to send documents that confirm both of these:

You moved in the last 60 days.

– government correspondence, bills or financial statement, mortgage or rental documents, homeowner’s insurance, letter from an insurance company


You had health coverage at least one day during the 60 days before your move.

– correspondence from your insurance company, employer, or health coverage provider

Important reminders:

• You should pick a plan within 60 days after you moved.
• If you’re moving from a foreign country or U.S. territory, you don’t have to prove you had health coverage. But the documents you submit must show a move from a foreign country or U.S. territory.
• If your eligibility results don’t say you need to provide documents, you don’t have to. Simply pick a plan and enroll.
