If you are graduating, turning 26, or leaving a school-sponsored health insurance plan, you may be eligible for a Special Enrollment Period.
Whether you plan to continue your education or look for work, find out if you qualify for income-based tax credits that reduce the cost of monthly health insurance premiums. These Advance Premium Tax Credits are only available through the Health Insurance Marketplace, but you can use them to purchase qualifying health plans from Community Health Options.
Our storefront will ask you a few qualifying questions (be sure to slide the button at the bottom of the page to ‘Check My Eligibility’) to estimate your potential tax credit and show actual plans and prices.
Once you have chosen a plan, you will be shown options to purchase. Choose Option 1, if you do not qualify for tax credits and want to purchase your plan directly from Community Health Options; choose Option 2 to confirm your eligibility for a tax credit and to purchase your health insurance through the Health Insurance Marketplace.
Timing is important! You must enroll in a new plan 60 days before or after you lose your current coverage.
