How does the Marketplace work?

The Health Insurance Marketplace, like any other type of marketplace, exists to provide options and help people find what they’re looking for. In this case, it’s health insurance coverage. On the Marketplace , you can compare health plans in your area based on price, benefits, out-of-pocket costs and other features. The Marketplace has resources such as educational materials, fact sheets, tips and a glossary. Through the Marketplace you can find local help or contact customer service 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. For help navigating the Marketplace, call us at 1-877-731-4649.

Once you have signed up for coverage, you can use the Marketplace to report life changes that could impact your eligibility and coverage, like having a baby or getting married.

The Marketplace can be accessed from your desktop, smartphone, or other mobile device.
