Individual and Family Health Insurance

Individual health insurance is health coverage that is purchased by an individual or a family and is not tied to a job or a group of policyholders.

Many people get health insurance through their employers. However, if you do not currently participate in your employer’s health plan, or if your employer doesn’t offer coverage, obtaining individual insurance is a good route to go to ensure that you and your family will receive affordable routine health care and will be protected from very high costs in the event of a medical emergency.

Get the care you need

If you don’t have insurance and can’t afford to pay out-of-pocket, you might have to skip or skimp on medical care for yourself or a family member. Having health insurance ensures you can get the care you and your family need. In addition, health insurance helps you pay for routine and preventive health care to keep you healthy in the first place.

  • Health insurance covers many preventive services without you having to pay a deductible or copayment. Preventive care is intended to prevent or catch diseases and other health problems before they become serious. Preventive services that are covered in full include various health screenings and immunizations.
  • Having health insurance will also help you pay for prescription drugs, either through reduced fees or copays.
