On March 1, 2020, the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) declared a national emergency due to the COVID-19 pandemic. Consumers who lost qualifying coverage in the past 60 days, or more than 60 days ago but since January 1, 2020, and missed the deadline to enroll in Marketplace coverage due to the COVID-19 national emergency, may qualify to enroll now in Marketplace coverage through a Special Enrollment Period (SEP). In this video, we’re going to do a walkthrough of how to report a loss of coverage in a Marketplace application to qualify for an SEP.
