Moving to a new state? You’ll need a new health plan
Published on May 24, 2018
When you move to a new state, you can’t keep a health insurance plan from your old state. To make sure you stay covered, report your move to the Marketplace as soon as possible. This way you can enroll in a new plan and avoid paying for coverage you won’t be able to use in your new state.
How to report a move to a new state
- When you move to a new state, your coverage options will change. You may no longer be eligible for your current plan.
- New plans, prices, and savings may be available to you.
- To get coverage in your new state, you’ll need to start a new Marketplace application or apply through your new state’s website (if your new state runs its own Marketplace).
- Get screen-by-screen uploading directions, with pictures (PDF), or follow these steps.
Move within the same state?
- If you move within the same state, your coverage options and savings probably won’t change based only on your new address.
- You can report the move by following these instructions.
