A Special Enrollment Period (SEP) is available on the ACA Health Insurance Marketplace for people who have lost their employer-based health insurance coverage due to job loss.
Job loss is considered a “Qualifying Life Event” for special enrollment. Also, some people may qualify for subsidies (tax credits) to help reduce monthly premiums and other costs.
Our consumer fact sheets, FAQs, and contact lists are available in multiple languages to help explain the various health insurance options available and provide contacts. Additionally, we have public service announcements in English and in Spanish. The full list of resources can be found at:
We also wanted to remind you that Open Enrollment for 2021 Marketplace plans begins on November 1, 2020 and ends on December 15, 2020. Get Covered Illinois is here to answer any questions
