2018 Healthcare.gov Marketplace

The HealthCare.gov insurance marketplace opened November 1 for 2018 plan shopping and comparisons. Please note that the enrollment period has been shortened by the President this year and will only run until December 15, 2017. If you already have insurance coverage through the HealthCare.gov marketplace, your plan will be automatically renewed on December 15 for 2018 but you should still visit HealthCare.gov to update your information, ensure you receive the full tax credit to which you are entitled, and review new options as cheaper insurance plans that better fit your needs may now be available.

Please note the following planned HealthCare.gov website maintenance dates and times when the website will not be available: Overnight on Wednesday, November 1 and Sundays from 12am-12pm ET, except on December 10.

If you are on Medicare or your employer offers qualified health insurance in which you are enrolled, you're already covered and won't need to enter the Marketplace for your health coverage. If you aren't sure whether or not you should use the Marketplace to get insurance, call the Marketplace Hotline at (800) 318-2596 or visit HealthCare.gov.
