If you had a 2020 plan on the federal Marketplace and are typically auto-renewed in coverage, you were auto-enrolled in the same or similar plan for 2021 on Get Covered New Jersey. If you want to change your plan, you will be able to access your account with your access code and pick a new plan on Get Covered New Jersey during the Open Enrollment Period. If you have not selected auto-enrollment, you will use your access code to access your account and can then shop and choose a plan.
You cannot enroll in a health plan the rest of the year unless you have a life event that qualifies you for a Special Enrollment Period.
