Health Insurance Marketplace

The Health Insurance Marketplace is a way for individuals to find health coverage that fits their budget and meets their health care needs. The Marketplace makes applying, comparing plans, and enrolling in health coverage easier. Financial assistance is available to individuals and families who make between 100-400% of the Federal poverty line ($12,140 - $42,380 in 2018) to help reduce the cost of coverage.

On the Marketplace, a consumer can apply for a Qualified Health Plan, Medicaid/TennCare or the Children’s Health Insurance Program/CoverKids. Small businesses can also buy coverage for their employees through the Small Business Health Options Program (SHOP).

For more information or to apply, visit or call 1-800-318-2596 (TTY: 1-855-899-4325) 24 hours a day, seven days a week.


Open Enrollment for 2019 is November 1 - December 15.
The Marketplace is open for enrollment in TennCare and CoverKids all year.
