Open enrollment is the time that individuals and families can apply for new health insurance coverage or change their coverage for 2021. It runs from Nov. 1 to Dec. 15, 2020. Most individuals and families will not have the option to enroll in coverage outside this time frame unless they have a life change such as marriage, birth or loss in coverage.
Enroll Wyoming received additional money to support its open enrollment efforts for this year through the CARES Act. Gov. Mark Gordon directed a portion of CARES funding to be dedicated to outreach, education and enrollment assistance for Wyoming individuals and families to access the health coverage and care they need.
