When Can I Buy Health Insurance in New Jersey?

Open Enrollment occurs once a year, usually from November 1 to January 31. It’s typically the only time you can enroll in health insurance coverage unless you have a major life event.

As part of New Jersey’s overall response to the coronavirus pandemic, the state has started a new COVID-19 Special Enrollment Period which allows all eligible New Jerseyans to enroll in a health insurance plan through December 31, 2021.

All eligible individuals can enroll now, and coverage will begin on the first day of the month following their insurance plan selection.

However, specific life-changing events such as pregnancy, the birth of a baby, or adoption also qualify you for a Special Enrollment Period (SEP) and allow you to enroll in coverage with an earlier effective date. Certain life-changing events also allow policyholders to make changes to their current plan.

If you qualify for a SEP, you usually have up to 60 days after the event to enroll or change your plan.
