Insuranceopedia Explains Enrollment Period

Enrollment is restricted to a specified period in order to ensure stability in the health insurance market.

If a person has failed to during the allotted time frame but experiences a life event that should result in a change of coverage, such as getting married or having a child, then they may qualify for special enrollment outside of the normal enrollment period.
