Income or household changes? Update your Marketplace application ASAP

If you're enrolled in a Marketplace plan and have changes to your income or household, update your application with these changes as soon as possible. Changes like higher or lower income, adding or losing household members, or offers of other health coverage may affect the coverage or savings you’re eligible for.

  • Changes in health coverage, like someone in your household getting an offer of job-based insurance
  • Changes to your household or family, like a birth, adoption, or moving to a new address
  • Corrections to name, date of birth, or Social Security number
  • Changes in disability or tax-filing status

How to report changes

  • Update your application online, by phone, or in person — but not by mail. Here’s how.
  • Note: If you move to a different state, you’ll need to start a new Marketplace application. Learn more.
