    We really do need to get her insured, if only because her school requires it.

      You can call your insurer anytime in the next 100 days and fix it. Even today.

      Or you can sign up for a different plan with a different insurer anytime, which will go into effect the following month.

        happen for January. So they would need to be enrolled at the beginning of the year or there might be an issue enrolling in school.

          doesn't start the second semester til the middle of the month.

          I think the system croaked on her because it thought she might qualify for either CHIP or Medicaid.   Confused, perhaps, by the fact that she'll be 17 for the first 6 weeks of the year.  I suspect that, as a college student, she won't qualify for Medicaid, but we really don't care. We just want to get her covered.
