Health Insurance Marketplace

The Health Insurance Marketplace is designed to make buying health coverage easier and more affordable. The Marketplace allows you to:

  • Compare health insurance plans
  • Get answers to questions about your health care
  • Find out if you are eligible for tax credits for private insurance or health programs like the Children’s Health Insurance Program (CHIP)
  • Enroll in a health insurance plan that meets your needs

The next Open Enrollment period runs November 15, 2014 – February 15, 2015 for coverage that begins as early as January 1, 2015. Learn more at HealthCare.gov.

Coverage Options outside Open Enrollment
