Health Insurance for Young Adults
Four Ways Young Adults can get Health Coverage
APPLY DURING SPECIAL ENROLLMENT PERIOD
Did you get married, have a baby, adopt a child or move? Did your student Health plan just expire? If so, you may be eligible to get Marketplace coverage outside of Open Enrollment.
APPLY FOR MEDICAID AND CHIP ANYTIME
Enrollment available anytime.
GET COVERED ON A PARENT'S PLAN
You may be eligible for coverage under a parent's health insurance plan until you turn 26. This also applies even if you are married, not living at home, or not financially dependent on your parents. If you turn 26 and age off of a parent's plan, you qualify for a special enrollment period.
CONSIDER CATASTROPHIC HEALTH COVERAGE
Protect yourself from high costs of worst-case scenarios like accidents or serious illnesses. If you're under 30, you can buy a catastrophic health plan that covers three Primary Care visits per year with free preventive care before you meet your needs.
