Health Insurance may come in several forms. If you are employed and your employer offers a group plan, this will likely be your best option. If you lose your employment and related healthcare coverage, you may be eligible for COBRA. If this type of coverage is not available to you, you may purchase insurance in your state’s marketplace. If you are 65 or older or legally disabled, and a US citizen or permanent resident, you are eligible for Medicare. If concerned you may not be able to afford any of these, your State and Federal governments offer Medicaid and other forms of Extra Help in paying for your health insurance and healthcare expenses.
