If you have been found ineligible for Medicaid, the Marketplace is here to help!

Virginia’s Insurance Marketplace is offering a Special Enrollment Period. Virginians who are found ineligible for Medicaid coverage between March 31, 2023, and September 30, 2024, are eligible for a Special Enrollment Period to apply for health insurance during that time. Virginians who apply for health insurance during this Special Enrollment Period may apply for coverage at any point between these two dates. After submitting an application, they will have 90 days to complete plan enrollment. Or, they can apply during the next Open Enrollment Period from November 1, 2024, through January 15, 2025.


Nearly 9 out of 10 Marketplace consumers qualify for financial assistance.

Beginning January 1, 2024, Virginians who lose Medicaid will have 90 days to enroll in a qualified health plan after they apply for health insurance. Coverage through the Marketplace is available to you whether you’re unemployed, you're self-employed, or your job doesn’t provide an affordable insurance option. The Marketplace is the only place to get financial assistance to help lower the cost of coverage and care.
