Get Covered Jax!

Get Covered Jax Logo with heart and stethescopeBeginning on November 1, 2023, eligible individuals can enroll in a private healthcare plan through the Florida Health Insurance Marketplace at

And in the interest of building a healthier Jacksonville – for everybody – we are here to help you get covered. 

For starters, here are some key things to keep in mind before visiting the site: 

Did You know?

  • There are affordable monthly premiums even as low as $0.00.
  • People can no longer be denied coverage due to pre-existing conditions.
  • Insured individuals have better access to primary care physicians for preventative care and treatment than those who are uninsured.

Eligibility Requirements​

  • You must be a US citizen or be lawfully present in the country.
  • You must reside in the state in which your Marketplace is located.
  • You must not be currently incarcerated.

Helpful Hints

  • A Health Insurance Marketplace (or Exchange) is designed to help create a more organized and competitive market for those shopping for health insurance. It offers a choice of different plans, certifies plans that participate, and provides information – and even in-person assistance - to help consumers understand their options and apply for coverage. There are Marketplaces for individuals, families and small businesses, so be sure to choose the one that’s best for your needs.

  • If you need assistance navigating a Marketplace, several options are available, all of which are listed in a directory on Florida’s Marketplace:

    • Navigators – all state Marketplaces are required to offer Navigator programs to help consumers review their plan choices, apply for financial assistance and appeal decisions. They are paid by the Marketplace but must complete training and be free from conflicts of interest. 

    • Volunteer Assistance Programs – these often offer in-person assistance, and are run by community health centers, hospitals and non-profit organizations. The volunteers also receive training, but do not receive funding from a Marketplace. 

    • Private Insurance Brokers – Brokers must also be trained and receive a commission for each policy they sell.
