Moving to a new state? You’ll need a new health plan

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.
