Welcome to Get Covered New Jersey, the state’s official health insurance marketplace where you can shop for and enroll in quality, affordable health coverage, and the only place to receive financial help to lower premium and out-of-pocket costs. As of November 1, 2020, New Jerseyans use GetCovered.NJ.gov instead of HealthCare.gov to shop for and enroll in 2021 coverage.
Due to the American Rescue Plan Act, Get Covered New Jersey customers are now eligible for new and expanded financial help. The State of New Jersey and the federal government are now providing additional savings. This means more people now qualify for more financial help.
If you did not qualify for financial help before because your income was too high, you may qualify under these recent changes. If you already receive financial help, you are likely eligible for additional premium reductions.
Existing Marketplace customers can update current application and enrollment information through their account for the new financial assistance to be added to your enrollment. If current consumers do not take action, Get Covered New Jersey will automatically update as many consumer accounts as possible to reflect the new financial help. Consumers can update their applications directly to receive the financial help sooner.
IMPORTANT: Existing Marketplace consumers who have received unemployment compensation in 2021, those who do not receive financial help, and those who have opted to apply only a portion of their financial help to their premium each month will not have their accounts automatically updated by GetCoveredNJ. Log in to your account and follow the instructions below to have these changes reflected in your account.
Current Enrollees can follow these easy steps to begin making these changes today.

Experienced a recent change?
If you are enrolled in a 2021 plan at Get Covered New Jersey, certain life events such as pregnancy, having a baby, or family members losing other coverage qualify you for a Special Enrollment Period with coverage dates specific to those events. You should also update your application if your income changes, as that can impact your eligibility. If you would like to change your current coverage unrelated to a specific life event, you may do so through the COVID-19 Special Enrollment Period.
