This year's March 31st enrollment deadline for the new marketplace has passed, and enrollment for health plans that start in 2015 will open this fall.

If you've had a recent life event or recent hardship, like a change in your employment or family status, you may still be eligible to find affordable options that fit your budget. In addition, you can apply for Medicaid or the Children’s Health Insurance Program (CHIP) any time.


Visit the new online health insurance marketplace and complete an application.


Choose a plan that works for you and your budget—you may be eligible for financial assistance.


Submit your first payment to complete the process.

If you currently have health insurance, you now have new benefits and protections thanks to Obamacare:

  1. Free preventive care, including check-ups and vaccinations
  2. Money back if your insurance company doesn’t spend at least 80% of your premium on care
  3. No more lifetime limits on how much your insurance company will pay for
  4. Children and young adults can stay on their family plans until they turn 26
