Health Insurance Marketplace®, contact North Dakota Navigators

Do you need health coverage? Open Enrollment runs from November 1 – January 15. 

The Marketplace is for people who don’t have health coverage

If you don’t have health insurance through a job, Medicare, Medicaid, the Children’s Health Insurance Program (CHIP), or another source that provides qualifying health coverage, the Marketplace can help you get coverage.

  • If you have job-based insurance: You can buy a plan through the Marketplace, but you’ll pay full price unless your employer’s insurance doesn’t meet certain standards. Most job-based plans do meet the standards.
  • If you have Medicare: You can’t switch to Marketplace insurance, supplement your coverage with a Marketplace plan, or buy a Marketplace dental plan. Learn about Medicare and the Marketplace.


Open Enrollment for 2022 runs Monday, November 1, 2021–Saturday, January 15, 2022

Starting November 1, you can log into HealthCare.gov, fill out an application, and enroll in a 2022 Marketplace health plan. Then, enroll by December 15, 2021, for coverage that starts January 1, 2022. Visit here for more information https://www.healthcare.gov/apply-and-enroll/get-ready-to-apply/
