Update & compare, even if you want to keep the same plan for 2018

Even if you want to keep your same plan for 2018, make sure you it's your best option — log in and update your information by December 15, 2017:

  • New plans may be available this year.
  • Costs and coverage could change in your current plan.
  • If you don't update your application, your financial assistance may be incorrect. You could pay too much for your monthly premium or use more advance payments of the premium tax credit than you qualify for.
