The Health Insurance Marketplace®


The Health Insurance Marketplace® is where people who don't have health insurance through a job, Medicare, Medicaid, the Children's Health Insurance Program (CHIP), or another source can apply for qualifying health coverage. Although the open enrollment period for 2022 closed on January 15, you can still enroll or change plans if you have certain life changes, like losing health coverage, moving, getting married or divorced, having or adopting a baby to name a few. You can always check to see if you and a family member qualify for Medicaid or the Children’s Health Insurance Program (CHIP).


If your application determines that you or a family member are eligible for Medicaid or the Children’s Health Insurance Program (CHIP) program, Quality Insights Navigators will put you in direct contact with the applicable agency.


Benefits of Health Insurance


Although health insurance is no longer mandatory you may experience financial hardship if you get injured or develop a serious illness and don’t have coverage. The cost of health insurance is a fraction of what you would pay out of your pocket if you were uninsured. This year, the Biden-Harris Administration is offering health care plans at record-low costs. More than 80% of consumers can purchase a plan for under $10/month and some qualify for reductions that cost them nothing.

Preventive Care

Marketplace health insurance plans include free preventive care.

Pre-Existing Conditions

You can't be turned down for coverage for having a pre-existing condition.

Plans may offer additional benefits, including:

Vision Coverage

Medical Management Programs

(for specific needs like weight management, back pain, and diabetes)

Dental Coverage



All plans must cover the following 10 essential health benefits plus 2 others:
  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 coverage aren’t essential health benefits)
  11. Birth control coverage
