Health Insurance Marketplace: http://healthcare.gov  (24/7 hotline 800-318-2596)

Starting October 1, 2013, you can apply and enroll in health coverage through the Health Insurance Marketplace. Health coverage starts as early as January 1, 2014, and open enrollment ends on March 31, 2014.

Through the Marketplace, you can apply, compare all your options, and find out if you can get lower costs on monthly premiums or get free or low-cost coverage. When you’re ready to enroll, you’ll decide how you pay your premiums or get help signing up for Medicaid or CHIP if you’re eligible.
