What information should I have ready before I start a Marketplace application
When you apply for or renew your coverage, make sure you have information about members of your household such as social security numbers, addresses, and birth dates. You'll also need income information such as paystubs or W-2s and your best estimate of your household income.

Can I access healthcare without insurance?
Health insurance is important to ensure you have access to care when you need it. However, if you cannot get or do not qualify for coverage, you may be able to pay on a sliding fee scale at a Community Health Center.
