What types of changes to report

  • Changes that affect your family size, like getting married or divorced, or having a baby
  • Changes that affect your household income, like changing jobs
  • Changes to the coverage that’s available to you, like becoming eligible for Medicare or Medicaid, or getting insurance through a job

How to report life changes

  • Report changes to the Marketplace by updating your 2019 application.
  • Update your application online, by phone, or in person (just not by mail).
