Types of Health Insurance

There are three main types of health insurance: PPOs, HMOs, and EPOs.

But if you're young and healthy, a private market health insurance plan is your best bet. With a private plan, you can go to any doctor or hospital you want, without having to worry about referrals or networks. And you'll have more control over your care, which can be a big relief if you ever need to use your insurance.

In addition to these three main types of health insurance, there are also public marketplaces, religious groups and associations, and private health based plans.
