The statistics are startling when it comes to the outrageous uninsured Americans and the numbers keep getting bigger. But what do you do when you don't have a job and can't get individual or family health insurance from an employer? Or, what about all the families that have jobs but still cannot afford the health insurance offered by their employers and can't find an option for cheap health insurance?

There are low cost health insurance options out there that, in fact, many Americans have already implemented and are beating the rising battle against being uninsured. In addition, more individual and family health insurance options are being brought into the market as the rising number of uninsured Americans increases. This is great news for people who just don't know what to do when it comes to obtaining low cost and cheap health insurance.

Check out Help! I Need Low Cost or Cheap Health Insurance for the top 10 ways Americans are getting the individual and family health insurance coverage they need.

Article really doesn’t help those who can’t afford to pay and are ineligable for assistance(medicaid).
I barely make ends meet doing odd jobs.
On a good note I quit smoking and drinking Soda for over a year now(can’t afford those habits).

Society loves Drug addicts and drunks,maybe I should become one of those then I will get help.

Last time I tried to buy health insurance online I got scammed out of $300 and never saw any medical cards, bills or nothing. I never got a refund. I suffer from epilepsy and we live on one income, it hurt us to lose just that little amount. How do you know who is legit and who isn’t?

Sorry to hear that, to answer your question sara.

If your buying insurance online. It only goes two ways:

If its thru a website its either directly thru the company or thru an Insurance Agent. If its a insurance agent usually they have their license # posted on their website, if not ask for it.

You can check their license # with your state license bureau by calling or going thru your states website and entering their license #

If its a website were you are looking for quotes or a particular type of plan like individual, family plan, copay etc. they require you to enter some brief information, from there they will pass it to a Insurance agent that is licensed to sell in your state to help you. You can ask for their license # if you are unsure about them and then look them up.

Hope that helps.

I have free health care because I am on medicaid. I should feel better, but being insured matters little when you have to see incompetent doctors. I feel worse on the days I see my doctors because of the condescension and superiority that is justified against me. I wonder if people would ever think that many of us have been productive members of society before our breakdowns. Forget productive, just members of society.

Don’t get health insurance. Just get a competent doctor. Plan to file for bankruptcy. Insurance companies don’t help you feel better. Also, check on charities that might help pay for medical bills within your hospital. The hospital may not tell you about it or where it is. Don’t tell hospitals you have money. They will take it from you. (Wise old words.) If you are caring for another person within or outside of your home, call social security and tell them so that you can be paid for the special and appreciated WORK that you are doing for someone else.
