Qualifying Life Events & Special Enrollment Period Consumers can enroll in a Covered California health plan or change their current plan only during Open Enrollment unless they experience aQualifying Life Event (QLE)—this is called Special Enrollment Period. During this period, Certified Enrollers may assist all consumers eligible for a Special Enrollment; they do not have the ability to complete new or in-progress applications without a defined Qualifying Life Event. Now Available: Our updated Special Enrollment Period Toolkit has valuable information to help you assist in enrolling consumers who experience a Qualifying Life Event. This includes new QLEs to help qualifying consumers enroll in a Covered California plan. Please Note: Special Enrollment does not apply to Medi-Cal applicants. These consumers can apply for coverage anytime during the year and do not need a Qualifying Life Event to gain coverage.
