You can apply now for healthcare coverage through HealthCare.gov. Because of the COVID-19 pandemic, the federal government has opened up a special enrollment period which will run from February 15 to August 15, 2021 in most states. If you or your child are eligible for CHIP or Medicaid or if you are getting married, having a baby, losing other insurance coverage or moving, you can enroll for healthcare at any time.
