Although employers generally subsidize an employee’s job-based health insurance by paying a portion of the monthly premiums, the employer might not subsidize spousal or family coverage. If your spouse’s employer offers health insurance to his or her family members, your share of the premiums will be deducted from your spouse’s paycheck automatically.
By comparison, the Commonwealth Fund’s Scorecard on State Health System Performance 2015 placed California 26th, but the state jumped 12 spots, to 14th place, in the 2017 Scorecard. While the majority of the state’s health indicators had relatively middle-of-the-road placement, the state fared very well in terms of tobacco use and percentage of the population that suffered from tooth loss (2nd place in both cases). But California ranked 50th in terms of the percentage of children with a medical home.
Manning & Napier's Ms. George noticed consumers jury-rigging these sorts of arrangements on their own, with sometimes troublesome results.

That became complicated, so recently, the company rolled out combo plans with single insurers to make the claims process easier.
A health care sharing ministry is an organization that facilitates sharing of health care costs among individual and families who have common ethical or religious beliefs. A health care sharing ministry is not actual insurance, is not regulated by the Department of Insurance, does not use actuaries, does not accept the risk or make guarantees, and does not purchase reinsurance policies on behalf of its members.
Consumers who are unable to afford ACA-compliant coverage can now purchase short-term coverage with a much longer duration in many states. Federal regulation changes in late 2018 made it possible for many buyers to purchase a short-term plan with an initial duration of nearly a year – with renewal options that allow the plan to remain in force for up to three years.

Outside of that time, you can qualify for Special Enrollment Period with “qualifying life events”. Some of these events include divorce, loss of employment, income change, new dependents, or moving to a new area. You will have to prove that you had a qualifying life event, and find health insurance within a certain window of time. Shopping with the help of resources at eHealth helps make this process faster, and get you covered as soon as possible.
