Q Can I Enroll in Health Insurance in the State of N.C.?
No, you cannot enroll through the federal exchange in North Carolina because the open enrollment period closed on December 15, 2017. Five hundred thousand twenty-three and nine hundred eighty-nine North Carolina residents enrolled during the enrollment period. The only exception is for those nationwide who experienced hardships due to the hurricanes last fall. A consumer is allowed to enroll if they undergo a "qualifying life event." These are a few examples of qualifying life events: getting married, having a baby, or moving and changing zip codes. If this has occurred, a consumer can enroll through a special type of enrollment. Insurance can also be obtained directly from insurance providers.
