Did you know that almost everyone can have health insurance?

What's the difference between Medicaid and Marketplace health insurance? 

Medicaid is a free or low-cost health coverage plan for Americans, who are low-income families and children, pregnant women, the elderly, and people with disabilities. This program is offered by the federal and state government. If you are ineligible for Medicaid, then the Marketplace is where you would find coverage. Families, individuals. and small business owners can compare and select the health insurance that fits their budget and needs.
