I Am Young and Healthy. Why Should I Get Health Insurance?

I Am Young and Healthy. Why Should I Get Health Insurance?

  • Getting sick or injured can happen to anyone at anytime
  • The average cost of an emergency room visit is $2000.
  • Insurance gives you free preventative care including birth control and annual check-ups at the doctor keep you healthy.

What is the "Medicaid Gap?" What if I'm in it?

Missouri FINALLY passed Medicaid in August 2020, meaning more healthy adults will be able enroll in July 2021.

In the meantime, some Missourians make too much to get insurance through Medicaid, but don’t make enough to get federal financial help to buy insurance through the Marketplace. They fall in a coverage “gap.”

If you live in St Louis City or County, a Planned Parenthood Counselor can help you apply for Gateway to Better Health, a program designed to help people in the Medicaid Gap get health care.

What Are My Options If I Am Under 26?

Children can stay on their parent’s health insurance plans until they turn 26. It does not matter if you are married, living with your parents, in school, claimed as a dependent, or eligible to enroll in your own employer’s plan.

However, your parents are not required to cover you. If you do not have coverage through your parents, you may be eligible to buy a plan through the Marketplace.

Where Can I Go For Care?

Each plan has different in-network providers and hospitals which can have lower costs than out-of-network providers.

A Marketplace Assister can help you find a plan that covers a doctor and hospital near your home. You can also go to your plan’s website or call the customer service number on your insurance card to find a covered provider in your area.

Insurance companies that offer plans through the Marketplace include:

  • Home State Health - Ambetter
  • Cigna – available in St Louis only
  • You can also apply for Medicaid or CHIP (MO HealthNet or MO HealthNet for Kids) through the Marketplace.
