Understanding The Health Insurance Marketplace | Ambetter of Illinois


Health Insurance Marketplace

The Health Insurance Marketplace is an online shopping mall of healthcare plans.

Each state has its own Marketplace. Only Government approved health plans will be available on the Marketplace.

There are four steps to buying a plan on the Health Insurance Marketplace:

  1. Enter Your Information

    Enter some basic facts about yourself, like your income and your family size. You can either complete this step online or through the mail. This will tell you what type of plan you’re eligible for, and whether or not you can get a subsidy.

  2. Compare Plans

    Take your time to pick the plan that works best for you and your family.

  3. Choose Your Plan

    Choose and enroll in your Ambetter healthcare plan.

  4. Start Coverage

    After you enroll, you will receive a welcome packet and an ID card from your new health plan.
