Basics of Health Insurance 

This section is meant to help guide you through the complexities of health insurance, whether you are:

  • Coming off your parents’ insurance and need to know the rules about coverage, where to begin and what to look for in a policy’s coverage. 

  • Worrying about the high deductibles and co-pays of your current insurance and wondering where to turn.

  • Questioning whether you are ready to apply for Social Security Disability Insurance (SSDI) and wonder if you qualify and how to get more information about this federal program.
