Need health insurance?

For coverage that begins in 2017, enrollment is now open for all Americans. But don't wait—open enrollment closes January 31, 2017. Preview plans, see if you qualify for financial assistance, and make sure you have everything you need to apply for coverage.

Get started here:


Get covered, stay covered


Visit the health insurance marketplace and complete an application.


Choose a plan that works for you and your budget—you may be eligible for financial assistance.


Submit your first payment to complete the process.


If you're already covered, there might be a plan available that's a better deal for you and your family. Check out your options.

Thanks to Obamacare, all Americans with health insurance now have fundamental protections and new benefits:

Preventive benefits—checkups, immunizations, mammograms, and more—have no out-of-pocket cost to you.

You are now protected against insurance company abuses like arbitrary cancellations and unreasonable rate increases.

You can't be denied coverage because of your current or past health.

Young adults can stay covered through a parent's plan until they turn 26.
