Health coverage for incarcerated people
If youre incarcerated, some special rules apply to your health care options.
Incarceration and the Marketplace
For purposes of the Marketplace, incarcerated means serving a term in prison or jail.
¢ Incarceration doesnt mean living at home or in a residential facility under supervision of the criminal justice system, or living there voluntarily. In other words, incarceration doesnt include being on probation, parole, or home confinement.
¢ Youre not considered incarcerated if youre in jail or prison pending disposition of chargesin other words, being held but not convicted of a crime.
If youre incarcerated, you cant use the Marketplace to buy a private insurance plan. But after youre released you can.
The Marketplace after release from incarceration
When you apply for health coverage after being released from incarceration, you may qualify for lower costs on monthly premiums and out-of-pocket costs. This will depend on your household size and income during the year youre seeking coverage.
After youre released, you have a 60-day Special Enrollment Period to sign up for private health coverage. During this time, you can enroll in private health insurance even if its outside the Marketplace open enrollment period.
After this 60-day Special Enrollment Period, you cant buy private health insurance until the next Marketplace open enrollment period (unless you qualify for another Special Enrollment Period).
Incarcerated people and the fee for being uninsured
Because you arent eligible to buy private health insurance through the Marketplace while in prison or jail, you dont have to pay the penalty that some others without insurance must pay.
After youre released, you must either have health coverage, pay the fee, or get an exemption.
If youre incarcerated pending disposition of charges
If youre in jail or prison but havent been convicted of a crime, you may use the Marketplace to buy a private health insurance plan. This assumes you are otherwise eligible to get coverage through the Marketplace.
Incarceration and Medicaid
If youre incarcerated you can use the Marketplace to apply for Medicaid coverage in your state. Medicaid wont pay for your medical care while youre in prison or jail. But if you enroll in Medicaid while youre incarcerated you may be able to get needed care more quickly after youre released.
There are 3 ways to apply for Medicaid:
¢ Online, at eitherÂ HealthCare.govÂ or your states Marketplace website. (Get a checklist that will help you gather needed information before you apply (PDF).)
¢ With a Marketplace paper application (PDF) that you fill out and mail in.
¢ Directly through your state Medicaid office. Use the Get state information dropdown menu on this Medicaid page to get contact information for your state Medicaid office.
State Medicaid policies and incarceration
A number of state Medicaid policies may influence your decision to apply for Medicaid while in jail or prison. These include:
¢ Whether your state has decided to expand Medicaid coverage to all adults with incomes up to 138% of the federal poverty level
¢ Whether incarcerated people can stay enrolled while in prison or jail. Remember that enrolling in Medicaid while incarcerated doesnt allow Medicaid to pay the cost of your care while in prison or jail. But it may help you get needed care more quickly after youre released.
