This week HHS stated that it will not reopen for a special enrollment period (SEP) during the health emergency. This means uninsured or underinsured people in the 38 states that use the federal platform will not have access to ACA marketplace coverage unless they qualify for an existing SEP. Of the 13 state-based marketplaces, 12 have created SEPs in response to the COVID-19 crisis.
