Starting today, you can apply for a 2016 health plan, renew your current plan, or pick a new plan through the Health Insurance Marketplace.
- New to the Marketplace? You can preview 2016 health insurance plans and prices before you apply. You’ll see premiums based on your estimated income. Remember, most people qualify for financial help with their premium costs.
- Have a 2015 Marketplace plan? You can compare 2016 health plans and prices to your current coverage, update your application with any household or income changes, and enroll in a plan. New and more affordable health plans may be available this year, so don’t miss out on savings for 2016.
IMPORTANT If you want your new or updated health insurance coverage to start January 1, you must enroll or change plans by December 15. This way you won’t have a break in coverage. You can change your plan any time during Open Enrollment, which ends January 31, 2016.
