Private health insurance is coverage by a health plan provided through an employer or union, or purchased by an individual from a private health insurance company. Employment-based health insurance is coverage offered through one’s own employment or that of a relative.
The five most common types of private health insurance plans are 1) Health Maintenance Organizations (HMOs), 2) Participating Provider Options (PPOs), 3) Point-of-Service (POS), 4) Fee for Service Plans, and 5) Health Savings Accounts. Find out more about each type of plan
