Released from Incarceration

You may qualify for a special enrollment period (SEP) if you are released from incarceration (done serving a term in prison or jail).

Key Dates

  • 60-day SEP begins: Date of release.
  • When you can enroll: Any time during the 60-day window of your SEP once your qualifying life event is verified.
    New customers: To avoid a gap in coverage you can create an account and apply at any time, even before your SEP window starts.
  • When your coverage starts:
    • If we received your plan selection the 1st through the 15th of the month, your coverage starts the following month.
    • If we received your plan selection the 16th through the end of the month, your coverage starts the 1st of the second following month.

Verification Documents

Be prepared to send a copy of the court order or release documents from the department of corrections or correctional facility showing your name and release date. 

Documents must show that you were released from incarceration within the past 60 days.

How and when do I send documents?

During the SEP application process you'll be instructed on how to send verifying documents, if they are needed. MNsure must receive your documents and have enough time to process them for you to have time to select a plan before your 60-day SEP window expires.
