Throughout the year your circumstances may change which may make you eligible for a Special Enrollment Period (SEP). If you have a baby, you or your dependent gain or lose other coverage, etc., you may be able to change your plan, enroll in a plan for the first time, add or drop family members, or terminate your plan. You must report the event WITHIN 30 DAYS of the event to be eligible for an SEP. Once you report the event in your account, DC Health Link will guide you through the options available to you and your family.
