Purchasing health care coverage through the Marketplace and reporting changes
Each year, qualifying taxpayers can participate in the Health Insurance Marketplace during open enrollment and special enrollment periods. Visit HealthCare.gov or contact your state-based Marketplace for updates on enrollment periods.
If you purchased insurance through the Marketplace, you must notify the Marketplace of any changes in your circumstances, such as changes in your household income or family size. Changes in your circumstances can affect your premium tax credit advance payments. You could be eligible for a particular enrollment period if you declare a change of events, which allows you to buy health care insurance via the Exchanges outside of the open enrollment period. For more information on disclosing changes in conditions and special enrollment, go to HealthCare.gov’s Marketplace.
See the Premium Tax Credit Adjustment Estimator on our Affordable Care Act Estimator Tools page to measure the impact of changes in circumstances on the amount of premium tax credit you can receive.
Visit IRS.gov to learn more about the Premium Tax Credit and other Affordable Care Act tax provisions.
Small Business Health Options Program Marketplace
The SHOP (Small Business Health Options Program Marketplace) helps small companies provide health insurance to their employees. Although the SHOP Marketplace was historically only available to businesses with 50 or fewer full-time equivalent workers, some states make it available to businesses with up to 100 employees beginning in 2016. Contact the state Department of Insurance or the SHOP Call Center if you have more than 50 employees and are unsure if you should use the SHOP Marketplace.
The SHOP Marketplace, which is also available to non-profits, helps you have health and dental coverage customized to the company’s and employees’ needs. SHOP gives you a lot of options, as well as the ability to apply and maintain your account online. You can join SHOP at any time of the year. When it comes to selling a SHOP contract, there is no time limit for when you can do so.
Small businesses that sell health insurance through the SHOP Marketplace could be eligible for a tax credit for small business health care.
