What happens if I move to an address outside of my current HMO's coverage area?

You are not able to remain enrolled in your current HMO if your new residential address is outside of its provider-specific coverage area, even if you lived within the coverage area when you originally enrolled. However, a move placing your residential address outside of your coverage area constitutes a life event, giving you 31 days from your change of address to select a new plan for which you are eligible. If, after 31 days, you do not enroll in a new health insurance plan, you will be automatically enrolled in the State Health Plan PPO (BCBSM) and your next opportunity to change your insurance election will be BOE or an eligible qualifying life event, whichever occurs first. Visit the ZIP Code Tool to verify the plans you are eligible for.
