What documents to submit to confirm your Special Enrollment Period

You might need to submit documents to establish your eligibility if you applied for Marketplace coverage during a Special Enrollment Period. You have 30 days from the time you choose a plan to send the documents.

To see what kinds of papers you can submit, look up your life event in the list below:


What documents am I allowed to submit?

  • If you moved, your name and the move date must be included on all documents. Bills, mortgage or rental documentation, or a letter from an insurance provider are all examples. In most circumstances, you must also show that you had qualifying coverage for at least one of the 60 days prior to your move. See the complete list.
  • If you lost previous health coverage, your name and the coverage loss date must be included in the documents. An example would be a letter from your insurance company or employer, a health care program document, or pay stubs. See the complete list.
  • Documents must indicate the individual’s name who became a dependent and the effective date if you adopted a kid or obtained a dependent through a foster care placement or court order. An adoption letter or record, foster care documents, or a formal guardianship document are all examples. See the complete list.
  • If you were married, the names of the married couple and the date of the marriage must be included in the documents. A marriage certificate, marriage license, or marriage affidavit are examples. See the complete list.
  • If you were denied Medicaid or CHIP coverage, your name and the date you were denied coverage must be included in the documents. Acceptable documentation includes a denial letter from your state agency, a letter from the Marketplace, and a snapshot of your eligibility findings. See the complete list.
