How can I get ready to apply for 2022 Health Insurance?
Make sure you have everything you need by using this checklist
Can I obtain a health insurance without having a valid SSN?
An applicant must be a permanent resident of the State of North Carolina in order to initiate an application. An applicant must provide at least one of the following as proof: NC voter registration, valid, unexpired NC driver license, current NC tax return, NC ID card issued by the DMV or a deed/lease signed by the applicant for an apartment, house, modular unit, or manufactured home with an utility bill that both display the same address as listed on this residency form.
Can I receive assistance on paying for the 2022 Marketplace plan?
When you apply for coverage in the Health Insurance Marketplace, you’ll find out if you qualify for a “premium tax credit” that lowers your premium — the amount you pay each month to your insurance plan. The amount of your premium tax credit depends on the estimated household income for 2022 that you put on your Marketplace application.
Can I still get health coverage for the rest of 2021?
Outside Open Enrollment you can get health insurance 2 ways:
- Through Medicaid or The Children’s Health Insurance Programs (CHIP) You can apply any time and can obtain coverage if you’re eligible.
- Qualify for the special enrollment period- You can qualify if you lose job-based coverage, have a baby, get married, or have certain other life changes. You must apply for coverage within 60 days of the life changing event.
