Open enrollment begins on November 1st.
We support Northern California with advice on choosing the right health plan and help applying for coverage. For more information about Kaiser Permanente, and your health coverage options make an appointment or just stop in at one of our Shop KP locations listed below.
You can apply for coverage outside open enrollment if you have a triggering event, such as marriage or birth.
You may change or apply for health care coverage during an annual open enrollment period.
Outside of the open enrollment period, you can enroll or change your coverage only if you have experienced a situation known as a triggering event.
For example, if you get married, have a baby, or lose coverage because you lose your job – all triggering events – you will have a special enrollment period.
A special enrollment period lasts 60 days after the triggering event occurs. That means if you’ve experienced a triggering event, you have 60 days from the day of the triggering event to change or apply for health care coverage for yourself and/or your dependent.
Examples of Triggering Events are:
- Loss of health care coverage due to job loss
- Gaining or becoming a dependent
- Permanent move so that you have different choices in health care plans
- Change in eligibility for federal financial assistance through Covered California
- Employer health coverage changes that impact your eligibility for federal financial assistance
Have you experienced a Triggering Event?
We can help you choose the right coverage.
At our Shop KP locations you don’t need an appointment. Just stop by to see us and we’ll help you find the health care plan that is right for you and your family.
