The new health care law expands health insurance with more benefits for more people and more affordable coverage. If you do not have health care coverage through an employer because you work part-time, are unemployed or self-employed, you can buy your own insurance. This is called individual health insurance, which can be purchased for yourself or your entire family.
Medicare is health insurance for people age 65 or older or people under age 65 with certain disabilities or illnesses. However, Medicare doesn’t cover everything. Medicare Supplement insurance, Medicare Part D and Medicare Advantage with Prescription Drug plans can help cover medical and prescription expenses that Medicare does not.
