Renewing Marketplace Coverage

I signed up for Marketplace coverage last year and I want to continue in this plan for another year. Do I have to do anything during Open Enrollment?

Even if you like your current coverage, it is strongly advised that you take steps to actively renew it during Open Enrollment.

If you are receiving a premium tax credit, when you actively renew you can also update your income and family information and see how much tax credit you may be eligible for based on the new premiums for the coming year. Even if your circumstances have not changed, new insurers might join the Marketplace or expand their service areas for 2024, and this could affect the amount of subsidy available for your plan next year.

In most states, Open Enrollment for 2024 plans begins on November 1, 2023 and ends January 15, 2024.

If you don’t take any action by December 15, in most cases the Marketplace will automatically renew your coverage for the coming year starting on January 1. You have until the end of the open enrollment period (January 15) to make changes to your health insurance plan.

While we have made every effort to provide accurate information in these FAQs, people should contact the health insurance Marketplace or Medicaid agency in their state for guidance on their specific circumstances.
