How Can You Find a Good Health Care Plan for Your Family?

Families seeking health insurance can inquire about options through the government's Health Insurance Marketplace at Healthcare.gov, according to the U.S. Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services. The government-sponsored health plans are designed for individuals and families who do not have existing health insurance through an employer.

Private health insurance companies provide health care plans for families through the Health Insurance Marketplace that can be obtained privately by contacting insurance representatives from those companies. However, as of 2015, individuals with low income or disabilities may qualify for savings by taking advantage of the government program, according to the U.S. Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services.
