Starting October 1, 2013, with the Health Insurance Marketplace you can find health coverage that fits your budget and meets your needs. With one application, you can find out if you can get lower costs on your monthly premiums for private insurance plans, and if you qualify for lower out-of-pocket costs and enroll.
The Marketplace will also tell you if you qualify for free or low-cost coverage available through Medicaid or the Children’s Health Insurance Program (CHIP).
Open enrollment starts October 1, 2013. Coverage starts as soon as January 1, 2014.
