Montana Health Insurance Marketplace Information

Health Insurance Coverage Information

As part of national health care reform, almost all Americans are required to have health insurance as of Jan. 1, 2014 or risk a tax penalty. The goal is to make coverage more available and affordable for those who do not have health insurance or have limited coverage.

Individuals and families may either qualify for private insurance coverage available through Montana's Health Insurance Marketplace or for state-sponsored Medicaid coverage.

Commercial insurance coverage

Open enrollment for insurance coverage through the Montana Health Insurance Marketplace is open from Nov. 15 through Feb. 15, 2015. People who experience certain qualifying life events may enroll throughout the year. View qualifying life events.

Enrollment must be completed by December 15 for an effective date of Jan. 1, 2015
