Health coverage for incarcerated people
If you’re incarcerated, some special rules apply to your health care options.
Incarceration and the Marketplace
For purposes of the Marketplace, “incarcerated” means serving a term in prison or jail.
• Incarceration doesn’t mean living at home or in a residential facility under supervision of the criminal justice system, or living there voluntarily. In other words, incarceration doesn’t include being on probation, parole, or home confinement.
• You’re not considered incarcerated if you’re in jail or prison pending disposition of charges—in other words, being held but not convicted of a crime.
If you’re incarcerated, you can’t use the Marketplace to buy a private insurance plan. But after you’re released you can.
The Marketplace after release from incarceration
When you apply for health coverage after being released from incarceration, you may qualify for lower costs on monthly premiums and out-of-pocket costs. This will depend on your household size and income during the year you’re seeking coverage.
After you’re released, you have a 60-day Special Enrollment Period to sign up for private health coverage. During this time, you can enroll in private health insurance even if it’s outside the Marketplace open enrollment period.
After this 60-day Special Enrollment Period, you can’t buy private health insurance until the next Marketplace open enrollment period (unless you qualify for another Special Enrollment Period).
Incarcerated people and the fee for being uninsured
Because you aren’t eligible to buy private health insurance through the Marketplace while in prison or jail, you don’t have to pay the penalty that some others without insurance must pay.
After you’re released, you must either have health coverage, pay the fee, or get an exemption.
If you’re incarcerated pending disposition of charges
