Signing Up For Health Plans

Thank you for visiting the Community Health Choice Health Insurance Marketplace (HIM) Direct Enrollment Portal. The portal is now closed, but will re-open on Nov. 1 for the 2021 enrollment period.

The 2020 annual Open Enrollment Period for Marketplace insurance ended Dec. 15, 2019. However, if you moved to a new state, changed jobs, got married, divorced or had a baby in the past 60 days, you may still be able to purchase a Community Marketplace plan. To find out if you meet the “Qualifying Life Event” criteria and can purchase a plan for 2020 coverage, please call Community Health Choice Member Services at 713.295.6704 or Toll-free at 1.855.315.5386 or visit our website at

More Information

Qualifying Life Event

If there is a change in your life status, which is called a “Qualifying Life Event,” you are eligible to enroll in healthcare coverage during a “Special Enrollment Period.” Examples of Qualifying Life Events are:

  • Moving to a new state
  • Certain changes in your income
  • Changes in your family size (for example, if you marry, divorce or have a baby)

Special Enrollment Period

Any time outside of the Open Enrollment Period, during which you and your family have the right to sign up for healthcare coverage, is considered Special Enrollment. In the Marketplace, you generally qualify for a Special Enrollment Period of 60 days following certain life events that involve a change in family status (i.e., marriage or birth of a child) or loss of other healthcare coverage. If you do not qualify for the Special Enrollment Period, you cannot purchase insurance through the Marketplace until the next Open Enrollment Period.
