Health insurance affordability programs

View and compare


The Marketplace (also known as the Exchange) is a website (healthcare.gov) where individuals can compare and purchase health insurance plans. Marketplace plans are great for individuals and families who are eligible for discounts or financial subsidies. These discounts can include:

Tax credits - Tax credits lower the monthly premium you pay for health coverage and are more available than ever due to the 2021 American Rescue Plan act. Depending on your household income level, these credits can pay for a considerable amount of your premium. You can use your tax credit on most Marketplace plans.
