2. Medicaid. Medicaid is a social-welfare program that provides comprehensive government-based health insurance to low-income people. In most cases, Medicaid is free health insurance for those who qualify (a few states charge modest premiums for people on the higher end of the Medicaid-eligible income scale).
3. Affordable Care Act Subsidy. The Affordable Care Act provides government subsidies to make health insurance affordable for people who buy their own health insurance through the exchange/marketplace.
4. Short-Term Health Insurance. Short-term health insurance frequently costs less than comprehensive health insurance. For this reason, it’s an attractive option to people looking for temporary coverage.
5. Job-Based Health Plan. Many employers in the United States subsidize health insurance for their employees and their employees’ families as part of the employee’s benefits and compensation package.
6. Spouse's Health Plan. If your spouse has job-based health insurance, you may be eligible for the same coverage. Most employers extend the offer of job-based health insurance to their employees’ spouses, children, and step-children.
7. Parent's Health Plan. If you’re less than 26 years old and your parent has an individual market plan (purchased on-exchange or off-exchange, or a grandmothered or grandfathered plan), or a job-based plan that offers coverage to dependents, you’re eligible for coverage under your parent’s health plan.
