It is possible to get a discounted health insurance plan if you are under age 26, a person who has not attained a certain age, and are at least 50 years old.
To qualify, you must have been covered under an employer-sponsored plan for at least six months.
You must have coverage at the time you sign up for the plan.
This discount may apply for you if you receive medical care or your insurance provider determines that you qualify.
Your employer is not required to provide health insurance to you, but they can offer you a discount if they think it is in your best interest.
If you have been diagnosed with a serious medical condition and your employer offers you a health insurance policy, you can receive the discounted health plan if the conditions are chronic, serious, or the doctor says it is the only way you will be able to afford coverage.
Your plan can also be bought by your employer, but it is up to your employer to decide if it is worth paying for.
If your employer does not offer a health plan, you will need to purchase a supplemental plan.
If there is no health insurance you qualify for, you are not eligible for the discount.
However, if you qualify, your employer can reduce the cost of your plan by up to 25 percent.
You may be able see a health benefits counselor to help you decide if the discount is worth it.
