The Health Insurance Marketplace is open and improved!  There are a number of new features available at HealthCare.gov for individuals and families seeking health care coverage.

What’s Available – Before you apply, you can see plan prices, covered benefits, physician and hospital networks, and more.  You’ll need to answer a few basic questions, but won’t need to log-in or apply to browse what’s available.

Multiple Ways to Enroll – There are still multiple ways to enroll.  Whether online, by phone (1-800-318-2596 or TTY 1-855-889-4325), or in person (simply provide your zipcode to find out where certified assisters are in our area), you can get help with an application, answers to your questions, and can discuss the options available to you. 

Remove Applications – If you experienced problems when you tried to apply online, you can now remove that application and start anew if that’s easier.  Simply log in to your account, select the application and then choose “remove.” Once that’s done, log back in and start a brand new application.

Apply Offline/Check Enrollment Online – If you submitted a paper application or applied over the phone, you can create a Marketplace account to pull up your eligibility determination and complete your enrollment. To do this, you’ll need your application identification number. Don’t have it?  You can contact the call center to get it!
