How to Apply for Community Health Care Program
Open enrollment for 2022 has ended, but you can still apply during a special enrollment period if you experience a qualifying life event.
Special Enrollment Period
You can apply for coverage if you have a certain type of event in your life — called a qualifying life event. A qualifying life event is when something important in your life changes. For example, if you get married or divorced, give birth, or lose health coverage because you lost your job, you can apply for coverage through the Community Health Care Program.
In general, the special enrollment period lasts 60 days after a qualifying life event.
If you have a qualifying life event, you’ll need to send in these documents:
- The Kaiser Permanente for Individual and Families Application
- The Kaiser Permanente Subsidy Eligibility form and include proof of income
- If you are self-employed, are paid in cash, or have other sources of income, complete the Reporting Form for Other Income
- Proof of your qualifying life event
Where to submit your forms and proof:
