You Lost Your Job and Your Insurance, Now What?

LENOIR, NC (June 10, 2020) — If you’ve recently lost your job due to COVID-19 and you had group health insurance, then you may have lost that too. However, all is not lost! Loss of employer sponsored coverage, is a qualifying life event which means you can possibly enroll in Individual Health as a Special Enrollment.

There are other situations where you can possibly take out Individual Health as a Special Enrollment. Those are loss of student health insurance, turning 26 and coming off a parent’s group or health plan, family changes such as divorce or marriage or having a baby, and moving.

If Individual Health doesn’t work for you, then you can possibly take out a Short-term Health plan for 30 days plus or a Hospital only type plan. If you own a small business, you might be able to put in a small group health plan. There are a few choices you have when it comes to health insurance.
