Open enrollment is Nov. 1 - Dec. 15 each year. Outside the open enrollment period, you can enroll in new coverage or make changes to your existing policy only if you have a certain life event that qualifies you for a special enrollment period. This information applies to Individual/Family policies purchased directly from Dean Health Plan or through an insurance agent. If you receive your insurance through your employer, contact your benefits administrator.
The process to make changes to your plan depends on where you purchase your health insurance:
This website provides information on special enrollment periods only for members who have purchased an ACA–compliant individual plan and may not be applicable if you are remaining on your non-ACA compliant individual plan. Additionally, this website may not include all special enrollment periods for which you may be eligible.
For more information please review your Individual Policy and Benefit Summary if you have individual coverage via the member portal. If you purchased your health plan on the Health Insurance Marketplace, please note that you will be required to make any changes on healthcare.gov.
