Insurance from your employer

Under the Affordable Care Act (Obamacare), most employers are required to offer a health insurance plan to their employees.

This is usually called private insurance.

They might have a few plans to choose from.

Here's what you can do:

  • Contact your employer's Human Resource (HR) department.

  • Ask them about your insurance options.

  • Tell them about your family member who has a disability, and ask if they can help you pick one that may be best.

  • Make sure to find out about the benefits and monthly costs for each choice. You'll have to pay a monthly cost for the insurance plan. These payments are called premiums.
