Did you lose your health insurance because of a job layoff/furlough or other life change?  If you had qualifying health coverage, according to healthcare.gov, you only have SIXTY days to secure marketplace coverage!


It is called a Special Enrollment Period (SEP) but the "window" is only open for SIXTY days.


And, remember, in Dane County, if your new income falls between 100 and 150% of the Federal Poverty Level, you may be able to get your health insurance premiums paid thru the HealthConnect program, administered by United Way of Dane County.
