July 1, 2011 - Iowa Open Enrollment Information- The Iowa open enrollment period for child-only, under 19 individuals will be from July 1 – August 14 annually. For applications received during the open enrollment period, coverage shall be offered on a guaranteed issue basis. Eligibility An individual applying for coverage during the open enrollment period or during a qualifying event period shall not be eligible for guaranteed issue coverage if the individual has other coverage or if other coverage is available at the time of the effective date of coverage. Other coverage shall not include coverage through the Iowa Comprehensive Health Association (HIPIOWA) or HIPIOWA-FED.
A qualifying event for a child under the age of 19 means:
If an application made during the open enrollment period is approved, coverage will begin September 1. Special application procedures will be required because the automated online quoting and enrollment system are not equipped to handle a child-only application. Call or email for assistance with a child-only application.
OnlineNavigatorTM Tony Novak reminds parents that an application for health insurance coverage may be made at any time without a qualifying event when the application includes a parent. A family-type application is not guaranteed acceptance so the applicants must meet regular health underwriting requirements when applying outside of the Iowa open enrollment program.
