A victim and survivor of domestic violence can apply for Affordable Care Act Marketplace health care insurance (https://www.healthcare.gov/) at anytime of the year by requesting the special enrollment period (SEP). And, victims and survivors will need to enroll within 60 days of applying for a Affordable Care Act Marketplace health care insurance plan via the SEP. (Just FYI: Normally, the open enrollment period for HealthCare.gov Affordable Care Act Marketplace health care insurance plans (https://www.healthcare.gov/) is November 1 – December 15 — for health care insurance coverage for non-crisis enrollment.)

Kansas Coalition Against Sexual and Domestic Violence (KCSDV) is a member of the Cover Kansas Coalition, which is a statewide Kansas group of community partners whose mission is to build awareness, facilitate enrollment, and promote health insurance literacy through collaboration, education, and engagement in an effort to reduce the rate of uninsured in Kansas. Visit Cover Kansas Coalition’s website at http://www.coverks.org/.

Contact https://www.healthcare.gov/ with any questions.

(Note: The Kansas Judicial Council does not provide assistance in getting protection orders; local organizations and programs providing victim advocacy services or Kansas Legal Services may be able to assist.)
