A special enrollment period is a time outside the standard open enrollment period when you and your family have the right to sign up for new health coverage.
This generally occurs in the 60 days after a change in family status like marriage or childbirth or the loss of other health insurance coverage. If you start working for a new employer, a job based plan provides a special enrollment period of 30 days.
