Q If I’m under 26 years old, what options do I have to get health insurance?
If you don’t have access to an affordable group health plan at work, here are your options:
- Stay on your parents’ plan until your 26th birthday.
- Get Medicaid coverage if your income is below 138% of the federal poverty level, depending on options for the state where you live.
- Buy a policy through your state health insurance marketplace. Depending on your income, you may be eligible for a subsidy that reduces the cost.
- Get student coverage if you’re enrolled in a college or university.
