Visit Health Insurance Marketplace

Learn how the Marketplace works, who can apply for coverage, how to lower your costs and more. When you're ready to apply, compare plans and enroll in coverage – is the place for that, too!

No matter where you live, you may be able to buy insurance from private health plans that cover a comprehensive set of benefits, including doctor visits, hospital stays, preventative care and prescriptions. Also, plans in the Marketplace must treat you fairly – they can't deny you coverage because of a pre-existing condition. You can also find out if you or anyone on your application qualify for Medicaid or the Children's Health Insurance Program, or if you can get immediate financial help to lower your health insurance premiums.
