Special enrollment periods (SEPs) for health insurance are periods of time outside of the regular open enrollment period during which certain individuals are able to enroll in or make changes to their health insurance coverage. SEPs are typically available to people who have experienced certain life events, such as the birth of a child, marriage, loss of other coverage, or a permanent move to a new area.

In general, the following individuals are typically eligible to enroll in health insurance during a SEP:

People who have recently had a child, adopted a child, or placed a child for foster care.

People who have recently married or entered into a domestic partnership.

People who have recently lost other coverage, such as coverage through an employer, Medicaid, or a plan purchased on the individual market.

People who have recently moved to a new area or have experienced a change in income that affects their eligibility for coverage.

It's important to note that rules and conditions vary across states, It's why we run an application at the Enrollment Center during SEP. A person may qualify for an SEP or at the very least they will be prepared for the start of Open Enrollment, which happens November 1st.

Long Term Care insurance and the WA Cares Fund

At Suzie Health Solutions , we are the full service enrollment center located in Wenatchee, WA. We get asked a lot of insurance questions. If you have not heard. Long term care in Washington State is changing this year. Long Term Care is the next big insurance problem facing the United States. It is no wonder why Washington state started to address the problem with House Bill 1087 & House Bill 1323 . Long Term Care is not part of health insurance or Medicare. It often falls under Medicaid programs after all the individuals’ resources have been exhausted. That is correct. If you have a private plan then those funds are run out first and then everything else to pay for your care . Yes, you can work hard all your life build up serious assets and if you don't plan for long term care leave little or nothing for your children.
