Frequently Asked Questions*

Why do I need health insurance?

Health coverage helps pay costs when you need care. No one plans to get sick or hurt, but most people need medical care at some point. Health coverage helps pay for these costs and protects you from very high expenses.

What is health insurance?

Health insurance is a contract between you and your insurance company. You buy a plan, and the company agrees to pay part of your medical costs when you get sick or hurt. There are other important benefits of health insurance. Plans available in the Marketplace (and most other plans) provide free preventive care, like vaccines and check-ups. They also cover some costs for prescription drugs.

What does health insurance pay for?

Health insurance helps you pay for care. Did you know the average cost of a 3-day hospital stay is $30,000? Or that fixing a broken leg can cost up to $7,500? Having health coverage can help protect you from high, unexpected costs like these.

Your insurance policy or summary of benefits and coverage will show what types of care, treatments and services are covered, including how much the insurance company will pay for different treatments in different situations.

What do I pay for health insurance?

You’ll usually pay a premium every month for health coverage, and you may also have to meet a deductible once each year before the insurance company starts to pay its share.

How much you pay for your premium and deductible is based on the type of coverage you have.

Just as important as the premium cost is how much you have to pay when you get services.

Examples include:

  • How much you pay for care before your insurance company starts to pay its share (a deductible)
  • What you pay out-of-pocket for services after you pay the deductible (coinsurance or copayments)
  • How much in total you’ll have to pay if you get sick (the out-of-pocket maximum)

What your policy covers is often directly related to how expensive the health insurance policy is. The policy with the cheapest premium may not cover many services and treatments.
