    What should I do if I think my eligibility results are wrong?

    If you don’t agree with what you qualify for, in many cases, you can ask for an appeal. Please review your eligibility notice to find appeals instructions specific to each person in your household who applies for coverage, including how many days you have to request an appeal. Here’s important information to consider when requesting an appeal:

    • You can have someone request or participate in your appeal if you want to. That person can be a friend, relative, lawyer, or other individual.

      Or, you can request and participate in your appeal on your own.

    • If you request an appeal, you may be able to keep your eligibility for coverage while your appeal is pending.

    • The outcome of an appeal could change the eligibility of other members of your household.

      To appeal your Marketplace eligibility results, visit HealthCare.gov/marketplace-appeals/. Or call the Marketplace Call Center at 1-800-318-2596. TTY users should call 1-855-889-4325. You can also mail an appeal request form or your own letter requesting an appeal to Health Insurance Marketplace, Dept. of Health and Human Services, 465 Industrial Blvd., London, KY 40750-0001. You can appeal eligibility for purchasing health coverage through the Marketplace, enrollment periods, tax credits, cost-sharing reductions, Medicaid, and CHIP, if you were denied these. If you qualify for tax credits or cost-sharing reductions, you can appeal the amount we determined you’re eligible for. Depending on your state, you may be able to appeal through the Marketplace or you may have to request an appeal with the state Medicaid or CHIP agency.
