Health Insurance Marketplace: Education and Enrollment Help

What is the Health Insurance Marketplace?

The Health Insurance Marketplace is a service that helps people shop for affordable health insurance. Typically, 85% of Mainers receive financial assistance to make the plans more affordable.

When can I sign up for health insurance?

The Open Enrollment period is November 1 to December 15 each year. 

You may be eligible for a Special Enrollment Period during the rest of the year if you have had a qualifying life event (losing health insurance, moving, getting married, having a baby, or adopting a child).

Can I get help signing up for health insurance?

Yes! We have Certified Application Counselors (CACs) who will meet with you in-person, review your options, and help you apply & enroll through the Health Insurance Marketplace. Please call with questions or to set up an appointment with one of our CACs.

  • Coverage Team at 1-833-284-8816 
  • Patient Assistance Line at 1-833-MHHELP1 (1-833-644-3571)
     

Can I enroll on my own?

Yes. There are two ways to apply and enroll on your own:

  1. Visit healthcare.gov. The estimator tool allows you to quickly determine if you are eligible for financial assistance and review plans before applying.
  2. Call the Health Insurance Marketplace at 800-318-2596 (24 hours a day, 7 days a week).
