Tips on Ending Marketplace Coverage

Consumers may voluntarily end their enrollment upon request for any reason. Common reasons may include obtaining other minimum essential coverage (MEC) such as Medicare, Medicaid or job-based coverage or simply wanting to end coverage. When terminating coverage:

  • The consumer must have enrolled and paid at least one month's premium (coverage has been effectuated).
  • The Marketplace generally would like at least a 14-day notice for  ending coverage but it is not required.
  • If the consumer is ending coverage for some but not all members on the application, their coverage will end immediately in most cases. In other situations, coverage will not end immediately including when the household members who remain enrolled in coverage qualify for a Special Enrollment Period.
