Oklahoma and the ACA’s Medicaid expansion

Enrollment in SoonerCare (Oklahoma Medicaid) is virtually unchanged since 2013, as the state has not accepted federal funding to expand Medicaid. But Medicaid expansion will be on the June 30, 2020 primary ballot. Gov. Stitt had proposed an alternative approach that called for Medicaid expansion as of July 2020 (with various restrictions taking effect a year later), but the July 2020 expansion proposal has since been withdrawn by the Stitt administration.

Proving you deserve an SEP

To address insurer concerns and help stabilize the individual health insurance market, HealthCare.gov and many state-run exchanges have taken steps to verify eligibility for special enrollment periods, and are requiring enrollees to provide proof of their qualifying events.

An SEP if your employer plan doesn’t measure up

If your employer-sponsored insurance becomes unaffordable OR the coverage is reduced such that it no longer provides minimum value, and if you are otherwise eligible for subsidies in the exchange based on your income, you'll have access to a 60-day special enrollment period in the exchange.

Non-calendar-year renewal as a qualifying event

If your health plan renews outside of open enrollment, you have access to a special enrollment period – either in the exchange or outside the exchange – that begins 60 days in advance of your plan’s renewal date, and continues for 60 days after your plan renews.

How your ‘big move’ can trigger an SEP

A permanent move to a new area will generally trigger a special enrollment period (SEP) for people who were already insured before moving. As long as there are different health plans (QHPs) available in the new area, the SEP will apply. This is true even if your current plan is still available in the new area.
