    Health insurance options for seniors include Medicare, Medicaid, private insurance, group plans from membership organizations or your employer, if you’re still working. Each plan varies a great deal, so read each plan carefully before deciding. If you need help figuring out which health insurance option is best for you, contact or peruse the American Association for Retired Persons (AARP), U.S. Agency for Healthcare Research and Quality (AHRQ), National Association of Insurance Commissioners (NAIC), and State Health Insurance Assistance Program (SHIP) websites.

    If you are a senior, your health insurance options include Medicare, Medicaid and supplemental insurance through private insurers or membership organizations. Medicare covers people age 65 and over, people with a disability, and those with end-stage renal disease. Medicaid covers low-income children, families, the elderly and people with disabilities.
