Gather Your Information

Before you start your application, gather the information below for all household members applying for coverage:

  • Legal names
  • Birth dates
  • Social Security numbers
  • Income before taxes/deductions
  • Tax filing status (this is what you report on your IRS tax return)
  • Proof of income (if your income has changed since you last filed taxes)
  • Current health insurance information (coverage dates, group number, policy number)
  • Proof of immigration status if you’re a legal permanent resident
  • Proof of tribal status if you’re a registered American Indian/Alaska Native

Make sure you add all household members, even if they don’t need coverage. This information helps us determine if you’re eligible for free or low-cost health insurance.
