You report changes to the Marketplace by updating your application. You can update your application online, by phone, or in-person — but not by mail.

Note: If you’ve moved to a new address in the same state, follow the directions below to update your application. If you move to a different state, you’ll have to start a new application. See what to do if you move out of state.

Update your application online

  1. Log in to your HealthCare.gov account.
  2. Select "Start a new application or update an existing one."
  3. Click your name in the top right and select "My applications & coverage."
  4. Choose the application you want to update.
  5. Click "Report a life change" on the left-hand menu.
  6. Read through the list of changes, and click "Report a life change" to get started.
  7. Select the kind of change you want to report.
  8. Navigate through your application and report any changes to your income, household members, address, new health coverage offers, and other information.
  9. After you’re done you’ll get new eligibility results that explain if you qualify for a Special Enrollment Period that allows you to change plans outside the yearly Open Enrollment Period or have your coverage start sooner.

Important: Be sure to complete all steps on your To-Do list including, if you’re given the option, completing your enrollment.
