Health Insurance Marketplace

This year, open enrollment for the Health Insurance Marketplace will be through Friday, December 15, and 2018 coverage will begin Monday, January 1. Those who are uninsured or have a marketplace plan will need to enroll/re-enroll during open enrollment.

Toledo/Lucas County CareNet has certified application counselors who can provide free help with open enrollment to local residents. To schedule an appointment, please call CareNet at 419-842-0800 or contact Danielle at dani@nwocarenet.org.

Residents also can call 1-800-318-2596 or visit this federal website for assistance and more information.

Outside of open enrollment, residents need a “qualifying event” – such as moving to another state, getting married or divorced, and losing employer-sponsored coverage – to get coverage through the Health Insurance Marketplace.
