Open Enrollment for 2024 health insurance is here, which means it is time for consumers to complete or update their Get Covered New Jersey application with any changes, such as income or family size, and enroll in coverage for 2023!
Open Enrollment runs now through January 31, 2024!
You must enroll by December 31st for January 1st Coverage!
Now is the time to buy health insurance for next year. Read the Get Covered New Jersey information below and make sure you’re covered for whatever life brings.
Plans and prices change every year, and there are more choices available for 2024, so we encourage you to help consumers shop and compare plans to find the coverage that best fits their needs and budget.
Learn more about record levels of financial help available through GetCoveredNJ, and nearly free coverage available year-round for residents at certain income levels ( up to $29,160 for an individual or $60,000 for a family of four for 2024).
Similar to last year, Get Covered New Jersey will automatically renew most consumers into 2024 coverage without requiring any consumer action. Consumers will receive notices from GetCoveredNJ in early November with their 2024 eligibility and renewal information and will be able to see their 2024 information in their account now.
It is important to inform consumers that if they made any changes to their 2023 coverage after October 6th, they will need to update their 2024 applications now with those same changes. Additionally, since plans and prices change each year, even those who are automatically renewed should review their plan options for 2024. Remember that consumers must take action by December 31st for plan changes to take effect January 1st.
New for 2023: Families with offers of employer health coverage may have new opportunities for savings at GetCoveredNJ. Specifically, starting this Open Enrollment Period, families with an offer of employer coverage that is considered unaffordable may be newly eligible for tax credits and state subsidies through GetCoveredNJ, even if they did not qualify before. Generally, families paying more than 9% of their household income towards employer coverage may be considered to have unaffordable employer coverage and could qualify for financial help to lower premiums for 2023 coverage.
Remember: For coverage starting January 1st, you must enroll by December 31st! Open Enrollment ends January 31st.
