If you have certain life events such as a birth, marriage, loss of coverage or relocation, you can enroll or change your current coverage through the Marketplace, or off the Marketplace, without waiting for the Annual Open Enrollment Period. Last year, 8 in 10 New Jersey consumers purchasing on the Marketplace received financial help with coverage.
If you qualify for an SEP, you usually have up to 60 days following the event to enroll in a plan. If you miss that window, you have to wait until the next Open Enrollment Period to apply.
To enroll or make changes through the Marketplace go to Healthcare.gov

In New Jersey, an individual earning up to about $49,960 a year and a family of four earning up to about $103,000 a year can qualify for financial help to lower the cost of their plan.
