You are eligible for coverage, regardless of health history. By law, you cannot be denied coverage because of pre-existing or ongoing conditions like cancer or diabetes.

Individuals and families may be eligible for financial assistance to help help pay for coverage and care. (Federal Government)

Health Insurance Marketplaces (referred to as exchanges) will allow you to apply for financial assistance or to make coverage more affordable.  You will also be able to compare and choose coverage that best fits your needs and budget.
