You have less than 2 weeks to enroll in Marketplace health insurance for 2021. If you enrolled for 2020, you have until December 15 to change or update your plan for 2021. If you don’t take action you may be automatically enrolled for 2021, but may miss out on new options.

How to Update & Compare for 2021

  • Even if you want to keep the same plan for 2021, log in and update your application with any expected income and household changes for the year ahead. There may be new plans that better fit your situation.

  • Updating your information will also make sure your 2021 financial help is correct. Otherwise, you could wind up paying more for your monthly premium or owing money when you file your federal income taxes.

  • Once your information is updated, compare your current plan with other available options for 2021. These steps can help you be confident you have the right coverage for your household next year.
