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.
Open enrollment for insurance coverage through the Montana Health Insurance Marketplace is currently closed, except for people who experience certain qualifying life events. The health insurance marketplace for Montana will reopen November 15, 2014 to enroll those who would like to purchase coverage for 2015.
If you qualify for Medicaid or Healthy Montana Kids, you may apply at any time throughout the year. Click here to go to the Montana Medicaid website.
