Marketplace Eligibility Appeal Request Form
It is not a dead end when you see that you are not satisfied with the decision of a health insurance marketplace. There is a range of decisions which give the possibility to appeal. If you are eligible to purchase a marketplace plan and enroll in it on a regular basis, prepare to file an appeal. If the marketplace makes a temporary determination about your eligibility after the application has been made, you have the right to give notice of appeal as well.
Remember, that you have the chance to ask someone else to file or take part in the appeal. It can be your relative, lawyer, friend or any other individual. However, it is not necessary.
