We are continuing to monitor the situation and will share any updates here as soon as they are available.
YEAR ROUND HEALTH COVERAGE ASSISTANCE
Open enrollment for 2020 Marketplace health insurance was November 1 to December 15, 2019.
If you weren’t able to sign up during open enrollment, you may qualify to enroll in a 2020 plan if you have a qualifying life event, such as:

- A move
- Release from incarceration
- Having a baby or getting married
- Gaining eligible immigration status
If you were able to enroll in a 2020 plan, we are available year-round to assist with your Marketplace application and your Marketplace health insurance plan. For example, contact us if you need help finding a doctor, understanding a bill, or making changes or updates to your Marketplace account.
Our team of experts is available by appointment from January through October.
