The Marketplace will have plans for different income levels. It will also help you find other programs you qualify for, like Medicaid or the State Children's Health Insurance Program. And it will help you sign up for them.

If you do not qualify for public aid and cannot afford to buy insurance on your own, you may apply for an exemption. If you're approved, you won't have to pay a fine for not having insurance.
