It's time to enroll for 2018 coverage!

 

It's Open Enrollment time! If you need health insurance for 2018, make your life easier and shop the marketplace early.  

The health insurance marketplace is OPEN. In spite of the Trump administration’s sabotage, you can still sign up for individual or small group health insurance. Financial help is still available for those who qualify. If you want your coverage to start on January 1, 2018, you must apply for or renew your coverage by December 15, 2017!

Who is eligible to apply for health insurance in the marketplace?

If you don't have health insurance coverage or if you lose your insurance through a layoff or a divorce or for any other reason, this new program is for you!

To apply for coverage, you will need to be a resident of the state where you are applying. You will also need to be a U.S. citizen (either born in this country or a naturalized citizen) or a what the federal government calls a “lawfully present” immigrant. That means you are a person with a green card, a refugee or a woman who has been trafficked. If you're not sure whether you fit the definition of “lawfully present” immigrant, you can learn more about that here.

Undocumented immigrants typically can't buy coverage in the marketplace. There are some exceptions for pregnant women, children and people with serious illnesses, and for people who qualify for emergency coverage through Medicaid. If you are a documented immigrant eligible for coverage, but have undocumented members of your family, you can safely enroll in coverage. Information about your family cannot be shared with immigration authorities.
