Health Insurance Marketplace (ACA)

What is the Health Insurance Marketplace?

The IRS maintains a web page about the Health Insurance Marketplace, including links to access additional information, as well as information about how the Health Insurance Marketplace may affect various tax situations.

"Health Insurance Marketplace — also known as the Health Insurance Exchange — is the place where people without health care insurance can find information about health insurance options and also purchase health care insurance. Information can also be found regarding eligibility for help with paying premiums and reducing out-of-pocket costs.

In addition to the federally-facilitated Marketplace,, there are also state-based Marketplaces. Whether you use the federally-facilitated Marketplace or a state-based Marketplace depends on the state in which you live. If you visit, you will be asked to provide your ZIP code. If you live in an area served by a state-based Marketplace, you’ll then be redirected to your state-based Marketplace’s website."
