When Covered California’s first open enrollment period ended on April 15, thousands of people were still left uninsured. Most will not able to purchase a health care plan until the second cycle of open enrollment comes around in November, but some may be able to obtain coverage before then.

According to Covered California officials, consumers are eligible to participate in a “special enrollment period,” if they’ve gone through a qualifying life event, such as marriage, divorce, loss or change of job, the birth of a child and becoming a citizen.
