I signed up for a Bronze plan with a high deductible during Open Enrollment. Now, six months later, I need surgery and would rather be in a different plan with a lower deductible. Can I change plans?

No, in general, once you sign up for a plan, you are locked into that coverage for 12 months, or until the next Open Enrollment period. A change in health status doesn’t make you eligible for a special enrollment opportunity.
