A local assessment showed 46 percent of residents 18-44 years old lack health care coverage. This is an opportunity for these residents to get needed coverage. When you apply for coverage or renew on the Health Insurance Marketplace, you will need to provide some information about you and your household. This includes income, any insurance you currently have, and some additional items.
Please bring the following to the enrollment events:
- ID information for all members of your family (age, Social Security numbers, or legal permanent resident/green card or visa numbers.)
- Income for all family members because you will have to estimate your 2017 family income to get your financial assistance (pay stub or tax forms, or other documents showing income.)
- Information about insurance offered through your job or your spouse’s job, even if you do not take it, including how much it costs for a single plan.
