How do I get health insurance?

Answer: 

There are several ways you can get health insurance:

Eligible participants can enroll in the insurance marketplace during the open enrollment period. For 2017 coverage, the enrollment period is November 1, 2016-January 31, 2017. During this time, you can enroll in New Hampshire's Federally Facilitated Health Insurance Marketplace or obtain individual policies through health insurance companies.

The only time you can enroll for insurance outside of the open enrollment period is if you qualify for a special enrollment period. In the marketplace, you qualify for a special enrollment period of 60 days following qualifying life events (link to Q/A regarding life events). Employer-based plans must provide a special enrollment period of 30 days.
