Enrollment in the 2018 Health Insurance Marketplace

Open Enrollment: Nov. 1, 2017- Dec. 15, 2017

The Health Insurance Marketplace is a government program where individuals can purchase private health insurance. It offers numerous insurance choices for those who have not been able to get insurance through their work or buy it on their own. Tax credits are available for those who qualify.  

Is the Health Insurance Marketplace for You?

Yes - Green Orb Yes: If you’re uninsured or underinsured and do not qualify for governmental coverage through Medicare or Medicaid.
Maybe - Yellow orb Maybe: If your eligibility for Medicaid (BadgerCare Plus) has changed; if you’re currently insured but shopping to compare coverage and rates; if you’re a veteran.
No - Red Orb No: If you’re on Medicare or Medicaid or insured through your employer you do not need to do anything during ACA open enrollment.

How to Enroll

• Create an account on healthcare.gov
• Enter personal and financial information
• Select a plan and make a premium payment

Currently Enrolled in a Marketplace Plan?

It’s important for all currently enrolled individuals to review all available insurance plans for 2017 and update their personal and financial information on their healthcare.gov account to ensure they receive the appropriate tax credit. If individuals currently enrolled do nothing, they will be auto-enrolled into the same – or similar – plan with the same premium tax credit and other financial assistance, if applicable, as your 2016 plan.

NOTE: All Marketplace changes must be done between Nov. 1, 2017 - Dec. 15, 2017.
