Learn About Your Issue
This category concerns issues a person might have with getting, using, or maintaining health insurance to pay for medical care. This is primarily about private health insurance (not those provided by government).
Health Insurance Options For People With Disabilities
Coverage options for people with disabilities. If you have a special health care need — like if you’re terminally ill, need help with daily activities, get regular care at home or in another community setting, live in a long-term care facility or group home, or have a condition that limits your ability to work — or if you have a disability, you have a number of options for health coverage. If you currently have Medicaid or Medicare, you’re considered covered under the health care law and don’t need a Marketplace plan. If you don’t have health coverage, you can fill out a Marketplace application to find out if you qualify for savings on a private health plan or for coverage through Medicaid.
