Health Insurance Marketplace

The Affordable Care Act (ACA) Health Insurance Marketplace is a federal program that provides financial help paying for a health insurance plan from a private company. The amount of financial help is based on your projected income and tax family size.


SVTHW has certified application counselors to help you navigate the Marketplace.

  • Annual open enrollment is November 1 – December 15
  • If you qualify for a Special Enrollment Period (SEP), you can enroll in health insurance outside the annual Open Enrollment period. You qualify for a Special Enrollment Period (SEP) if you’ve had certain life changes like getting married, having a baby, or losing job-based health insurance. These are called “qualifying life events.”
  • Members of federally recognized Indian tribes can enroll in or change plans once a month throughout the year.
