Health Insurance Marketplace

The Health Insurance Marketplace helps uninsured and under-insured individuals and families compare and shop for affordable health insurance plans as part of the Affordable Care Act (ACA), sometimes called "Obamacare". Most people who use the Marketplace will qualify for tax credits, which lower the cost of monthly payments. These lower costs are only available to those who apply for coverage through Healthcare.gov.

Benefits

Join the 14,000+ New Orleans residents who enrolled in health insurance through the Marketplace last year to take advantage of these benefits. 

Lower costs

Over 87% of those who enrolled in coverage in Louisiana last year were eligible for tax credits to lower the cost of insurance. Monthly payments (premiums) will likely be based on your income and you may also qualify for lower costs when seeing doctors and getting care (co-pays/deductibles). Calculate your costs (see plans now!)

All plans cover check-ups, hospital care, and prescription drugs, as well as maternity care, mental health, and more.

Lots of choices
