Health Insurance Coverage If You're Under 65
To enroll in Medicare and obtain health coverage, you have to be over 65 years of age or have a qualifying medical condition. However, if you're under 65 and need health coverage, there are a variety of medical insurance options from which you can choose. Educating yourself on those choices is an important first step to obtaining the right health coverage for your circumstances as well as saving money on health insurance. Remember that medical insurance coverage and health insurance premiums differ according to each health insurance company, and they also vary among plans offered by the same insurance company.
