There are many ways to get health insurance. You can get it through your job, through a government program like Medicare or Medicaid, or you can buy it yourself.
If you get health insurance through your job, your employer will usually pay part of the premium, and you will pay the rest. The premium is the monthly amount you have to pay for your health insurance.
If you get health insurance through a government program like Medicare or Medicaid, you will not have to pay a premium. However, you may have to pay other fees, like a deductible, co-payments, or coinsurance.
If you buy health insurance yourself, you will have to pay the entire premium yourself. You can buy health insurance through the Health Insurance Marketplace. You may be eligible for a subsidy, which is a help with paying your premium, if you meet certain income requirements.
