Great! I’m going to help guide you through sone of the major things you should know.

What is commercial health insurance?

A health insurance plan provided by and administered by a private insurance company rather than the government.

Examples include:

  • A group health plan (it may be offered by your employer, or your spouse’s)
  • An individual plan you buy on your own from an insurance company
  • An individual plan you buy on the the Health Insurance Marketplace
    (also called the health exchange). You can call the contact number for individuals and families at (800) 318‑2596.

An individual plan you buy on the the Health Insurance Marketplace (also called the health exchange). You can call the contact number for individuals and families at (800) 318‑2596.

With commercial health insurance, you might have a choice of plans, such as a health maintenance organization (HMO), preferred provider organization (PPO), exclusive provider organization (EPO), or point of service plan (POS). Each has unique coverage, provider networks, and benefits.
