The Health Insurance Marketplace is a way to find health coverage that fits your budget and meets your needs. With one application, you can see all your options and enroll. You can apply for private insurance, Medicaid or the Children’s Health Insurance Program (CHIP).
Private insurance plans offered through the Marketplace have the same set of essential health benefits, including doctors visits, preventive care, hospitalization, prescriptions, and more. You cannot be denied coverage because of pre-existing conditions like cancer or diabetes.
