If you're not eligible for lower costs on a health plan because your income is too high, you can still buy health coverage through the Health Insurance Marketplace. To apply, create an account or log in to your existing account.

Don't qualify for savings? Three other ways to buy a health plan

  • Directly from an insurance company. You can contact any health insurance company and see plans available in your area. Many have websites that let you compare all plans they sell.
    • You can also use our Plan Finder website, which presents information about private health plans available outside the Marketplace.
  • Through an insurance agent or broker. Generally, agents work for a single health insurance company, while brokers sell plans from several. Both can help you compare plans and enroll. You don't pay more by using an agent or broker. They're generally paid by the insurance company whose plans they sell. They may not sell all available Marketplace plans.
  • From an online health insurance seller. These services offer health plans from a number of insurance companies. They let you compare prices and features and then enroll with the insurance company.
