  • If you're under 26. If a parent's health insurance plan covers dependents, you can be added to their plan and stay on it until you turn 26. Learn more about getting on your parent's plan.
  • Purchase a Marketplace plan. If you have a life event - like moving to or from the place you attended school, or losing other health insurance (like dropping off a student plan or your parents' coverage) - that qualifies you for a Special Enrollment Period.
  • Get Medicaid, if you qualify. If you're working part time or aren't making much money, you may qualify for Medicaid. If you qualify, coverage can start right away, any time of year.
