If you want coverage that meets minimum ACA standards, you have to sign up during open enrollment unless you qualify for a special enrollment period. If you live in a state using HealthCare.gov, open enrollment for 2024 coverage runs from November 1, 2023 to January 16, 2024. To find out if your state has a longer or different open enrollment period, see our state fact sheets here. If you experience a qualifying life event, you may also be eligible to enroll in a plan during a special enrollment period.
