If you get a notice from the Marketplace saying that you need to submit documents to confirm your move, you need to upload or mail documents for at least one person on your application who moved. You may need to submit more than one document.
You must also submit documents to confirm you had health coverage for at least 1 day in the past 60 days. If you lived in a U.S. territory or foreign country for at least 1 day out of the 60 days before you moved, you can submit documentation that proves this instead.
IMPORTANT: Upload or mail documents as soon as possible. If you don’t submit documents by the deadline, you won’t have Marketplace coverage.
What documents can I submit?
Documents must show that you (or your dependent) moved. These documents must include your name and the date you moved. Documents you can submit:
- Bills or financial statements that show a change of address or newly started services at your new address, including:
- Mail from a financial institution or a bank statement.
- An internet, cable, phone, or other public utility (like gas or water) bill or service communication. This should show the date that your new utilities or services started.
- U.S. Postal Service change of address confirmation letter that includes the mail forwarding date and the address the mail will be forwarded to.
- Mortgage or rental document for your new address, including:
- A mortgage deed that says the owner uses the property as a primary residence.
- A rental or lease agreement that shows a start date at your new address.
- A letter from a government organization, on official letterhead or stationery, that shows a change of address to your new address, including:

If you moved within the U.S., you must also submit a document that includes your name and shows that you had qualifying health coverage for at least 1 day in the past 60 days before your move. Documents you can submit:
- An insurance document, like a letter from an insurance company showing you or your dependent’s health coverage, including COBRA. This should be on official letterhead or stationery.
- A document from an employer, like a letter about you or your dependent’s health coverage, including COBRA. This should be on official letterhead or stationery.
- A document from a health care program, like a letter from a government health program, like Medicaid, CHIP, TRICARE, Veterans Affairs (VA), or Peace Corps. This should be on official letterhead or stationery.
If you moved from a U.S. territory, you must submit a document that confirms this information. Documents you can submit:
- A license, government issued ID card, voter registration card, or other form of official identification that shows that you previously lived in a U.S. territory.
- A document at your previous address dated within 12 months before your move and a document showing your new address (dated within 60 days after your move), or a document confirming your move (listed above).
If you moved from a foreign country, you must submit a document that confirms this information. Documents you can submit:
- An Arrival/Departure Record (I-94/I-94A) (in a foreign passport or separately) that shows your date of entry into the U.S.
- A passport with an admission stamp showing your date of entry into the U.S.
You can upload more than one document. Select the green “UPLOAD DOCUMENTS” button to upload and submit each document.
What if I’m homeless or in transitional housing?
You can submit a reference letter from a person in your state who can confirm that you live in the area permanently. This could be a friend, family member or caseworker. This person must also confirm their own residency by including one of the documents listed above. To submit this letter, select “Other” from the drop-down menu.
What if I don’t have any of these documents?
You can submit one document showing your new address (dated within 60 days prior to your move) and one document at your previous address dated within 12 months after your move. To submit these documents, select “Other” from the drop-down menu.
Or, you can submit a letter with the date of your move, your old and new addresses, and the reason you can’t submit documents. The Marketplace will take your letter into consideration. To submit this letter, select “Letter of explanation” from the drop-down menu.
