Health Insurance

Health insurance is a way to split medical costs with an insurance company by purchasing a plan where the company agrees to pay some of your medical expenses. Different health insurance plans can have a variety of costs and benefits, and in many states, these can be compared in a health insurance marketplace. These resources can help you find, compare, and evaluate different health insurance options for yourself and your family.
