Report life changes to the Marketplace
Published on August 10, 2023
When life changes, your health coverage and saving options may change too. If you’ve had a change, like you got married or moved to a new address, let the Marketplace know.
What type of changes should I report?
Certain changes are considered
. There are 4 basic types:
- Loss of health coverage: Losing job-based coverage (yours or a household member’s) or eligibility for Medicaid, Medicare, or the Children’s Health Insurance Program (CHIP)
- Residence changes: Certain household moves, like to a new ZIP code, county, or state
- Household changes: New baby, marriage, divorce, or death
- Other qualifying life events, like changes in your income that affect the coverage you qualify for or becoming a U.S. citizen
These changes may affect the coverage or savings you’re eligible for. Also, you may qualify for a Special Enrollment Period to sign up for health insurance outside of Open Enrollment.
