Typically it you lost your health insurance in the past 60 days or expect to in the next 60 days, you have what's called a qualifying event for Special Enrollment. And due to the American Rescue Plan, anyone can apply for coverage regardless of whether or not they have a qualifying life event.

There are a few other circumstances that may qualify you for a special enrollment including moving and losing health insurance, losing eligibility for Medicaid (or CHIP), and turning 26 and losing coverage through a parent’s plan.
