How Enrollment Works

Enrollment Deadline
There are six (6) enrollment coverage effective dates throughout 2024. To ensure your coverage starts on the specific date below, you must enroll by 11:59PM EST on the 25th of the month prior to that effective date.

Late Enrollment
If you enroll after the 25th (for example, on the 26th), your coverage will become effective on the first day of the month following the next enrollment window.
Example: If you enroll on March 26th, your coverage will start on June 1st, not April 1st.

Coverage Effective Date
It’s important to note that your coverage begins on the effective date, not the date you submit your enrollment.
