You must meet the following requirements to be eligible for the Health Insurance Marketplace:
No matter what state you live in, you can use the Marketplace. Some states operate their own Marketplace. In other states, the Marketplace is run by the federal government.
Get a quick Marketplace overview on the "A quick guide to the Health Insurance Marketplace" page to help you apply.
The open Enrollment Period is the only time you can enroll in a Marketplace plan. You can enroll in Medicaid or CHIP at any time. During the Open Enrollment Period, you can apply for a Marketplace plan online, by phone, with a paper application, or with the help of a trained assistant in your community.
Some people may qualify for Special Enrollment Periods, which allow them to enroll in a Marketplace plan outside of Open Enrollment if they have certain life events, like getting married, having a baby, or losing other coverage.
