Medicare and the Health Insurance Marketplace

Family in doctor's office

The health insurance Marketplace is a way for individuals, families, and employees of small businesses to get health coverage.

Medicare and The Marketplace FAQs

The Marketplace is generally not a place for someone with Medicare to look for health care coverage. The Marketplace plans are not designed to coordinate with Medicare. However, you may be able to purchase health care from The Marketplace before you are eligible for Medicare. Depending on your income and family size, you may be able to get lower costs on your monthly premiums and lower co-payments and deductibles. Click the link below to visit our Marketplace page under Other Health Insurance section for more information and FAQs.
