Why get health insurance?

Health insurance helps pay for your health care when you need it most and protects you from financial debt. We’ll help you get lower monthly costs so you can know you’ve got a plan to back you up.

What do I need to apply? 

  1. Names and dates of birth for each person in your household.
  2. Mailing address. If someone in your household – those you include on your tax return – has a different home address, you’ll need that, too.
  3. Social Security numbers. Enter the Social Security number of anyone who is applying for coverage. If you leave this blank, you may be asked to provide more information at a later time.
  4. Immigration document information. Non-citizens who apply for coverage may be asked to provide information from immigration documents.
  5. How you file your taxes. You may be asked about your filing status and who you claim as a dependent on your taxes.
  6. Income sources. If you apply for savings, you will enter employer and income information for everyone in your household.
