Get Health Coverage: Know the Facts about the Health Insurance Marketplace
What is the Health Insurance Marketplace?
The health insurance marketplace is for people who don’t have health coverage through their job, Medicare, Medicaid, CHIP,
or another source that provides qualifying coverage. Depending on your income, you may be eligible for discounted insurance
through the marketplace.
Who is eligible to use the Marketplace?
To be eligible to use the Marketplace you must live in the United States, you must be a U.S. citizen, national, or legal resident.
When someone uses the Marketplace to compare plans they’ll see prices for all plans available to them.
Prices will show any cost savings they may be eligible for based on their income. These lower costs are available only in the Marketplace. The marketplace will also automatically screen a person for eligibility to Medicaid and CHIP.
