2020 Open Enrollment Runs from November 1, 2019 to December 15, 2019
Now is the time to think about your health care needs for 2020. Just as your needs change, health plans change too. There are new plan options and new health coverage options being offered for 2020 so it is important to know what has changed and what you need to do during this year's Open Enrollment.
There are also new rules for Virginia’s Medicaid program that may affect your 2020 Marketplace coverage! On January 1, 2019, Virginia Medicaid launched a new health insurance option for adults. This means that some adults who qualified for financial assistance to purchase a Marketplace plan in previous years may now qualify for full-benefit Medicaid coverage, such as single adults earning up to $17,237 a year. When you complete or update an application on the Marketplace, an assessment for both Medicaid and Marketplace coverage with financial assistance will be done. If you are eligible or likely eligible for Medicaid, your information will be sent to Virginia and assessed for Medicaid eligibility.
Find out more information about the new Medicaid coverage option for adults.
What to do if you already have Marketplace coverage
If you already have a Marketplace account, make sure you can still access your account and, if needed, update your password. Go to healthcare.gov if you need to create or update your account.
