AssiStance:

If you want to receive federal financial assistance to pay for a plan, you will need to enroll through the Marketplace (HealthCare.gov). An insurance agent or enrollment assister can help you with this process. If you are enrolled in Marketplace coverage for 2018, you will receive renewal information from your insurance company and the Marketplace. Even if you liked your plan for 2018, it is important to update your application and look at your options for 2019 because plan benefits and networks change from year to year.

You can buy a plan outside of the federal Marketplace – through an insurance agent or directly from an insurance company – and it will cover the same essential services as a Marketplace plan. If you are enrolled in the New Hampshire Health Protection Program, you will receive information from the New Hampshire Department of Health and Human Services about how to select a plan for 2019 under the new New Hampshire Granite Advantage Program. Have questions? Want to learn more about the Marketplace? Want to start reviewing plan options?
