Open Enrollment - November 1 - January 15


Marketplace Health Insurance

Enrolling in health insurance is a proactive way to take the first step towards better health and well-being. With the help of a trained individual, you can receive free support in finding a plan that fits you and your needs through the health insurance Marketplace.

The annual open enrollment period is November 1 – January 15. If you qualify for a special enrollment period (SEP) because of a life change like getting married, having a baby, losing other coverage, or moving, you may apply for coverage outside of open enrollment.

What is Health Insurance?

Health insurance is a contract between you and an insurance company. You buy a plan, and the company agrees to pay part of your medical costs when you get sick or hurt.

All plans offered in the Marketplace cover these 10 essential health benefits:

  1. Ambulatory patient services (outpatient care you get without being admitted to a hospital)
  2. Emergency services
  3. Hospitalization (like surgery and overnight stays)
  4. Pregnancy, maternity and newborn care (both before and after birth)
  5. Mental health and substance use disorder services, including behavioral health treatment (this includes counseling and psychotherapy)
  6. Prescription drugs
  7. Rehabilitative and habilitative services and devices (services and devices to help people with injuries, disabilities, or chronic conditions gain or recover mental and physical skills)
  8. Laboratory services
  9. Preventive and wellness services and chronic disease management
  10. Pediatric services, including oral and vision care (but adult dental and vision care aren’t essential health benefits)
