Need Help Enrolling in a Health Insurance Plan?

There are Enrollment Counselors who can help you enroll for health insurance.  You can’t be turned down or charged more because of health problems. Assistance is available 24 hours a day at the nationwide Marketplace Consumer Assistance Line:

 

If you're already enrolled through the federal marketplace, you will be automatically re-enrolled and will not lose your health insurance coverage. However, it is recommended that you revisit the marktetplace and review your current plan.  You may be able to lower your current payment, OR what you have now may end up costing you more than you thought.
