Previously, we reported that many of the states which use state-based marketplaces (SBMs) were offering Special Enrollment Periods (SEPs) due to the COVID-19 outbreak. You can see the full list in our prior news item. Two SBMs have since announced that they are extending the time period for a COVID-19 SEP.
Maryland is extending their SEP through June 15th and has indicated that if someone enrolls by the 15th of a month, they will still get coverage effective the 1st of that month. Massachusetts is extending their SEP through May 25th and has indicated that for coverage beginning the 1st of the month, enrollment must be completed by the 23rd of the prior month.
