Marketplace Health Insurance

Also known as ObamaCare, a Marketplace health insurance plan provides affordable care plus free preventative care.

Open Enrollment is from November 1 to January 15. You may be eligible to sign up now within a special 60-day enrollment period if you’ve experienced a job change, marriage or divorce, birth of a child, or other certain life events.


KidsCare (Arizona Children’s Health Insurance Program) provides free or low-cost insurance for children up to age 19.

Don’t qualify for AHCCCS? Have a Marketplace plan but can’t afford health insurance coverage for your children? Even if you’ve been turned down in the past, you may qualify for KidsCare now, and we’ll help you find out!


AHCCCS (known as “Access”) is Arizona’s version of Medicaid. If the cost of health insurance feels out of reach, then AHCCCS may be for you.

AHCCCS offers comprehensive coverage including doctor visits, hospital care, prescriptions, mental health care, and more. If you get sick or injured, you can get the care you need and avoid large medical bills. Enroll anytime!


The Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP) can help you purchase healthy food for your family, including fruits and vegetables, meat, poultry, fish, dairy products, bread and cereals, and more.

First, we’ll help you gather everything you need to prove your eligibility for health insurance.

Due to government regulations, this can be a complicated step and often takes more than one appointment with your Navigator. We’ll walk with you every step of the way to get you covered as quickly as possible.

AHCCCS is Arizona’s version of Medicaid and covers care for lower-income children and families, seniors, people with disabilities, and pregnant people.

The Marketplace helps people shop for and enroll in affordable health insurance. With a Marketplace health insurance plan, you’ll pay monthly premiums. Many people qualify for reduced premiums and extra savings depending on their income level.

Many non-citizens who are “lawfully present” in the U.S. are eligible for Medicaid.

Most qualified non-citizens, such as many Legal Permanent Residents (LPRs) or green card holders, are eligible to enroll in AHCCCS/Medicaid and KidsCare after being in the U.S. for five or more years. This means they must wait five years after receiving “qualified” immigration status before they can get AHCCCS and KidsCare coverage. There are exceptions to the five-year wait period, including for refugees, asylees, or LPRs who used to be refugees or asylees.

If you’ve been denied coverage, we’ll help you file a dispute—so you can get the quality care you need.

Even if you’ve been previously denied, you may now be eligible for free or low-cost health insurance. We’ll walk you through every step of the way to help you navigate through the application and enrollment process.

If you’ve experienced a qualifying life event, you may be eligible to enroll in a Marketplace health insurance plan during a special 60-day enrollment period, outside of the normal November 1–January 15 Open Enrollment period.

Qualifying life events may include: job/income loss, marriage or divorce, having a baby or adopting a child, a family death, moving to a different county or ZIP code, becoming a U.S. citizen, loss of health coverage, and more.

Don’t wait… You’ve only got 60 days after a qualifying life event to enroll! Schedule an appointment now and one of our Navigators will help you determine your eligibility and get covered.

As of December 2020, COFA Islanders have been restored eligibility for AHCCCS/Medicaid, including citizens from the Federated States of Micronesia (consisting of the four island states of Chuuk, Kosrae, Pohnpei, and Yap), the Republic of the Marshall Islands, and the Republic of Palau.

Other assistance may also be available, including reduced premiums for Marketplace health insurance plans.

Our Navigators, who have firsthand experience assisting COFA Islanders with health insurance enrollment, are eager to help you apply and get access to quality care.

When applying for Marketplace insurance, you’ll need to provide additional documents including your I-94 (found in your passport from your country of origin), I-766 (your employment authorization), and Social Security card.
