When Can I Enroll in ACA Health Insurance In Michigan?
Open Enrollment is November 1 thru January 15. For most people, eligibility for the affordable Michigan health care plans on the Marketplace will land during these dates.
Eligibility outside this period requires a Special Enrollment Period (SEP) and is based on certain life events: For example, losing health coverage, relocating, giving birth or getting married. Currently in Michigan, Medicaid Unwinding has resulted in a SEP allowing those who are losing Medicaid to enroll in a Marketplace plan of their choosing regardless of the Open Enrollment Period (OEP).
The Federal government may open a Special Enrollment Period for other reasons. For example, in 2023 we have the “Medicaid Unwinding” assessments in which many people are losing Medicaid. A large number of Medicaid recipients will lose health coverage as a result of the audits. However, they will be allowed a SEP by the Federal Governement so they can obtain healthcare either as an individual or as a family on the Marketplace.

Affordable Private Health Insurance
For those who financially qualify, the health insurance Marketplace has private health plans as low as $0 per month. This is going to depend upon household income and number of actual dependents in your home. If you are in need of private family insurance or just as an individual, be as accurate as you can understanding that you should avoid underestimating overall income. Why? Because any excess credit (premium reduction) you receive as a result will be charged back to you when you file your taxes. However, if however your household income is less than anticipated, you will receive a credit on your taxes for the future.
