Get Coverage 

Before the Open Enrollment Period begins on November 15, 2014 you can only enroll in Obamacare or a Marketplace health plan if you qualify for a Special Enrollment Period. If you enroll in a plan before the Open Enrollment Period(starting November 15) it will end December 31, 2014. For 2015 coverage, you must enroll on or after November 15. If you do qualify for a SEP, visit this link to learn more and sign up. Applications for Medicaid and the Children’s Health Insurance Program (CHIP) can be done at any time. You can apply two ways: by visiting the Medicaid page and finding your state Medicaid agency or using a Health Insurance Marketplace application. If you wish to use the Health Insurance Marketplace, find out if you qualify and start an application.


For 2015 coverage you must apply between November 15, 2014 and February 15, 2015.
