If you're not eligible for lower costs on a health plan because your income is too high, you can still buy health coverage through the Health Insurance Marketplace®.
You can also get insurance other ways — through a private insurance company, an online insurance seller, or an agent/broker.
First: Do a quick check to see if you may save
Don't qualify for savings? Three other ways to buy a health plan
- Directly from an insurance company. You can contact any health insurance company and see plans available in your area. Many have websites that let you compare all plans they sell.
- Through an insurance agent/broker. Generally, agents work for a single health insurance company, while brokers sell plans from several. Both can help you compare plans and enroll. You don't pay more by using an agent/broker. They're generally paid by the insurance company whose plans they sell. They may sell only certain companies' plans. Search for health insurance agents and brokers near you using our Find Local Help tool.
- From an online health insurance seller. These services offer health plans from a number of insurance companies. They let you compare prices and features and then enroll with the insurance company. They may not offer all plans available in your area.
