Many people get health insurance through their employer or their spouse’s employer. This is often called “Employer-Sponsored Insurance.” Your employer usually pays part of the premium. You pay the rest of the premium through a payroll deduction.
Small employers can buy qualified health plans (QHPs) directly from the insurance companies. A small employer is an employer with up to 100 full-time equivalent employees.
If you have questions or problems with your employer-sponsored plan, the human resources department at your job may be able to help.
