Affordable Care Act enrollment sign-up guide
Washington Post

Who can enroll?

You can sign up if you’re uninsured, buy your coverage outside the ACA marketplaces or are enrolled in a marketplace plan. People earning between 138 percent and 400 percent of the federal poverty level ($16,105 and $46,680, respectively, for an individual) can qualify for financial assistance to buy coverage. In the 23 states that haven’t expanded Medicaid to cover nearly all low-income adults, people with incomes above the federal poverty line ($11,670 for an individual) can also receive subsidies to buy insurance on ACA marketplaces. However, about 4 million low-income adults who don’t qualify for Medicaid in states that haven’t expanded coverage also don’t earn enough to qualify for subsidies to buy insurance.
