3 ways: report income & household changes

If you have Marketplace health insurance and your income or household changed — like if you had a baby, got a raise, or someone in your household got new job-based coverage — you should update your application as soon as possible.

Why it’s important to report changes

  • Certain changes may qualify you for a Special Enrollment Period, allowing you to change plans outside Open Enrollment.
  • The changes may also affect the savings and coverage options you qualify for.
  • If you don’t report changes, you could wind up owing more—or less—when you file your next federal tax return.
