Enrolled in a 2017 health plan? Report household or income changes ASAP.

If you’re enrolled in 2017 insurance and your expected income or household information change – like if you get a job, have a baby, marry or divorce, or get a new offer of health coverage – you should update your application as soon as possible.

If you report changes by January 31, you can pick a new plan based on your updated information – or for any other reason.
