How To Get Health Insurance

You've learned about the different types of health insurance plans and what they offer. The next step is signing up for one. There are three ways to join a health insurance plan.

Through Your Job

You can get a plan through your employer or your spouse's employer. Generally you or your spouse will pay some of the costs, while the employer covers the rest. Many employers will offer a choice of health plans.

On Your Own

If you're self-employed or otherwise not eligible for benefits from your job, you can purchase coverage on your own. If you have lost your job, you may be able to purchase insurance through COBRA (Consolidated Omnibus Budget Reconciliation Act). Visit www.cobrainsurance.net to learn more. In Massachusetts you can buy health insurance directly from health plans. For example, Blue Cross Blue Shield of Massachusetts offers over 40 health insurance plans.
