Virginia's Insurance Marketplace
Open Enrollment for Virginia's Insurance Marketplace
If you do not qualify for Medicaid or FAMIS, you may be able to get health insurance through the Virginia Insurance Marketplace. The Virginia Insurance Marketplace was created for Virginians, by Virginians, and is the only place to get financial assisrance to help lower the cost of coverage and care.
Unlike Medicaid and FAMIS that have year-round enrollment, most Virginians who enroll in health coverage through the Marketplace need to sign up during Open Enrollment, which is November 1 to January 15 each year. If they do not sign up during Open Enrollment, they must qualify for a Special Enrollment Period or wait for the next Open Enrollment. Special Enrollment Periods are given when some experiences a change in circumstances such as:
- Losing other coverage, including Medicaid or FAMIS
- Getting married, divorces or having a child
