Students who do not have health insurance may find the following links helpful in obtaining health care or health information. Please visit each site for more information about eligibility.

Health Insurance Marketplace (healthcare.gov)

No matter where you live, you may be able to buy insurance from private health plans that cover a comprehensive set of benefits, including doctor visits, hospital stays, preventative care, and prescriptions. Plans in the Marketplace must treat you fairly – they can’t deny you coverage because of a pre-existing condition. You can also find out if you or anyone on your application qualify for Medicaid or the Children’s Health Insurance Program, or can get financial help to use right away to lower your health insurance premiums.

If you have questions about the Health Insurance Marketplace, visit the website or call the Marketplace Call Center toll-free at 1-800-318-2596. TTY users should call 1-855-889-4325. Tell the customer service representative if you need help in a language other than English.

If you need additional assistance, you can contact Enroll Virginia!, an organization that offers one-on-one assistance to educate Virginians about the Marketplace and provide application assistance to small businesses and individuals who need their help. Contact Enroll Virginia! Online at www.enrollva.org. You may also call 1-888-392-5132 or email at info@enroll-virginia.com.
