Applying for Health Insurance Just Got Easier

On October 1, millions of Americans will have a simple new way to get affordable health coverage: the Health Insurance Marketplace.

With one application, you'll be able to compare all your coverage options side-by-side, learn if you can get lower costs based on your income, and enroll in a plan that fits your needs and your budget. In fact, the new application is so simple that it's 17 pages shorter than the current application you'd fill out to enroll in coverage in the individual market. 

Find out more about signing up for affordable health insurance.
