Open enrollment

Open enrollment is the period of time when you can sign up for a health plan or switch to a different plan.

Open enrollment happens once a year. There are only a few reasons you could change health plans during other times of the year. One reason is if you lose your health insurance for some reason. Another reason is if you add a new member to your family.
