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.
Existing Marketplace customers can view current application and enrollment information through their account. Residents with federal Marketplace plans for 2020 were automatically transitioned to Get Covered New Jersey for 2021.

2021 Health Coverage
If you had a 2020 plan on the federal Marketplace and selected to be renewed in coverage, you were automatically enrolled in the same or similar plan for 2021 on Get Covered New Jersey during the Open Enrollment Period. If you did not select auto-enrollment, you should have received an access code allowing you to access your account, shop and choose a plan.
Still need health insurance or experienced a recent change?
If you still need 2021 coverage, you can enroll now through May 15, 2021 through the COVID-19 Special Enrollment Period. Your coverage will begin on the first day of the month following your plan selection.
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.
