  • You qualify for “special enrollment period” due to a change in life circumstance such as marriage, divorce, having or adopting a child, etc.
  • You qualify for expanded Medicaid health coverage**

**Medicaid health coverage can be applied for at any time during the year.  See this link  for Medicaid (ABE) income guidelines.
