This article will tell you everything you need to know about the open enrollment dates for 2022 health insurance and the details associated with employer and Obamacare coverage.

This article also answers common and important open-ended registration questions, including:

When is registration for health insurance open in 2022?

The registration period open for Obamacare 2022 is from November 1, 2021 to January 15, 2022.

In this window you can register, re-register or modify a health insurance plan through the health insurance market – or health exchange, as some call it.

You may have even more time to purchase health insurance for 2022 if you live:

  • California
  • new York
  • Washington DC

These states operate their own health insurance exchanges or markets. For this reason, they can extend their open registration windows.

For 2022, this means that you can purchase health insurance between the following dates in California, New York and Washington, DC

State or district Registration period open 2022
California From November 1, 2021 to January 31, 2022
new York From November 16, 2021 to January 31, 2022
Washington DC From November 1, 2021 to January 31, 2022

When is registration open if I take out health insurance with an employer?

Open enrollment periods related to employer-sponsored health insurance plans often run between October and December.

We cannot give you more precise dates because each employer sets its own registration period open to health insurance.

So, if you have health insurance with an employer and you don’t know their 2022 open registration deadlines, check with human resources.

Is registration open only once a year?

Yes, open registration for health insurance only takes place once a year.

For example, unless you are eligible for a special registration period, you can only get Obamacare coverage during the open enrollment period that begins at the end of the year. The same goes for the health coverage you get from an employer.

In other words, you usually cannot purchase health insurance all the time.

When does 2022 health insurance coverage begin?

Most 2022 health insurance plans start on January 1.

If you want Obamacare coverage and live in a state with expanded open enrollment, it may not take effect until later.

Most employer sponsored health insurance plans also start on January 1. Not all employers have this, though, so check with yours if you’re unsure when its 2022 coverage begins.

Do I have to wait for registration to open to obtain health insurance for 2022?

You must wait for open enrollment to obtain coverage for 2022 through the health insurance market or an employer.

The only way to get these types of health insurance plans outside of open enrollment is to qualify for a special enrollment period.
