I need help in a language other than English. What can I do?
The Marketplace has a number of ways to get help. You can contact the call center 24 hours a day at 1-800-318-2596 and get help in many
different languages. Every state will also have trained people in your community to help you understand the various coverage options and
apply for health insurance through the Marketplace. They may be called Navigators, Certified Application Counselors, In-Person Assisters, or other similar terms. You can go to https://localhelp.healthcare.gov/ and enter your zip code or city and state to find someone near you who can help. See our State Fact Sheets for more information on getting in-person help
in your state.
