Open Enrollment for 2015 coverage is now open.
See if you qualify for a Special Enrollment Period — so you can buy a private health plan through the Marketplace.
Apply for Medicaid and the Children’s Health Insurance Program (CHIP) — you can do this any time, all year. If you qualify you can enroll immediately.
Small businesses can apply for SHOP coverage any time, all year.
Members of federally recognized tribes and Alaska Native shareholders can enroll in Marketplace coverage any time of year. There is no limited enrollment period for these groups, and they can change plans as often as once a month.
