FIND OUT WHAT’S AVAILABLE
Those who have employer-sponsored options should review those first, said Linden. Barring that, your spouse, domestic partner or parent — if you are under age 26 — might have a health plan that provides affordable options.
If neither of those avenues is open and you don’t qualify for Medicaid, Medicare or military insurance, search for an individual plan through the Affordable Care Act, also known as “Obamacare.”
Some states run their own ACA health insurance exchanges, and others use the federal exchange, found at HealthCare.gov. Finally, look for other options off the ACA exchanges.
