STILL NEED HEALTH COVERAGE FOR 2017?
The deadline for 2017 plans is over. Open Enrollment for 2018 runs November 1 - December 15, 2017. Coverage starts January 1, 2018.
If you still want coverage for the rest of 2017:
- See if you qualify for a Special Enrollment Period due to a life event like losing other coverage, getting married, or having a baby.
- See if you qualify for Medicaid or the Children’s Health Insurance Program (CHIP). You can apply for these programs any time.

If you don’t have health insurance through a job, Medicare, Medicaid, the Children’s Health Insurance Program (CHIP), or another source that provides qualifying health coverage, the Marketplace can help you get covered.
Your savings depend on your expected household income for the year. Over 8 in 10 people who apply are eligible to save, and most can find plans for $50 to $100 per month (after accounting for savings).
Get a quick idea if you'll save. Based on your income estimate, we’ll tell you if you qualify for:
