Graduating college means saying goodbye to that student health plan. You may be eligible for a Special Enrollment through Covered California.
Consumers have 60 days from the date on which the qualifying life event happens to enroll in a Covered California health insurance plan or change their existing Covered California plan.
For example, if a graduate loses her health plan on June 1, she has until July 31 to notify Covered California, complete an application, choose a health plan and pay for it. If she does not get health coverage, she may have to pay a tax penalty.
If 60 days pass and consumers do not sign up for health coverage, they will have to wait until the next open-enrollment period unless they experience another qualifying life event.
