Affordable Care Act (ACA) update

Although Open Enrollment for ACA health insurance is closed, you can apply or make updates anytime if you have a “Life Change” such as a change in your income, moving, having a baby, getting married or divorced, or getting released from incarceration.

If you are a member of a Federally Recognized Tribe, you can apply and make changes to your ACA health insurance once a month, any time during the year.

Medicaid update

Everyone can apply for Medicaid any time during the year. Medicaid includes DENTAL and VISION coverage! Due to huge changes, you may be eligible for Medicaid this year even if you weren’t eligible in the past. We strongly encourage everyone to apply for the new Medicaid!

If you have questions about your current Medicaid status and benefits, you can call the Montana Medicaid Helpline at (888) 706-1535. Assistance is available Monday-Friday 8am-5pm.
