Enrollment for Illinois residents begins each year in November. There are deadlines for enrollment. The later you enroll the later your coverage will begin:
|Coverage Starts January 1||Coverage begins February 1||Coverage begins March 1|
Open enrollment ends January 31. If you miss open enrollment, you will have to wait until the following year to enroll without penalty unless you have a qualifying life event. If you have a qualifying life event that changes your family status you may qualify for a special enrollment period.
