If you have a 2016 Marketplace plan, you should have received two 2017 re-enrollment letters by email or postal mail: one from your insurance company and one from the Health Insurance Marketplace.

Your Health Insurance Marketplace letter includes:

  • Anything you must do to get a premium tax credit for 2017. You may have to send documents, like tax or income information.
  • How to update your application to make sure you get the right savings for the year.

Your insurance company letter includes:

  • Whether your 2016 plan is available in 2017
  • If not, whether the company is offering you a similar or alternate plan
  • Any changes to the plan for 2017
  • The 2017 premium, after any premium tax credit has been applied. The tax credit may be based on dated information from your 2016 application or other sources.
  • Whether you’ll be automatically enrolled if you don’t take action by December 15

TIP: Keep your re-enrollment letters in a safe place

You may need them when you enroll for 2017.

What if I didn’t get a Health Insurance Marketplace notice?

You can contact the Marketplace Call Center, but before you call, log into your Marketplace account and check your messages. It may be there.

What if I don’t get a notice from my insurance company?

Contact your insurance company, not the Marketplace.

How will I know when I’ve been automatically enrolled?

If you haven't updated your application and confirmed your 2017 health plan selection by December 15, you'll get a notice from the Marketplace between December 16, 2016 and January 1, 2017.

It will say which plan you’ve been enrolled in and explain your options for updating and changing plans.

When you log into your account on or after December 16, you may see a message telling you we’ve automatically enrolled you. You’ll find it on your “My applications & coverage” page.

You can change your coverage until January 31, 2017.
