The cost of getting covered by an independent medical or hospital insurance plan is often not covered by your employer, meaning that you pay out-of-pocket for your care.
If you’re under the age of 55, you’re entitled to Medicare, but many employers don’t offer that option.
To get your own insurance, you have to get a waiver from your employer or get a state-issued medical insurance card.
Below are the steps to take to pay your medical bill and keep your coverage.
Get a waiver or health insurance card If you have coverage from an employer or a family member, you may need to go to your state-approved health insurance agency and obtain a waiver.
The waiver process is similar to a state job or disability insurance plan.
You must go to the agency, submit an application and provide information about your coverage history and income.
If the waiver is approved, you can keep your plan if your employer changes your coverage and you want to get back into the plan.

If your state does not have a state medical insurance agency, you will need to apply for one.
The process may take a few days and may require you to attend an appointment.
Your state may have its own agency that can help you find an insurer or a program that can take care of your medical bills.
File a claim If you think your medical expenses will be high, you should file a claim with your state health insurer.
If this is not possible, the federal government may help you pay for medical expenses.
Federal law requires employers to provide health insurance to their workers.
If they don’t provide it to their employees, they can be held liable for any health costs that you incur.
The Internal Revenue Service and other federal agencies have issued guidance that requires employers and employees to provide at least a minimum of basic health insurance coverage to their covered workers.
This guidance is designed to provide employers with the information they need to plan for and ensure their workers have access to adequate health care coverage.

If an employer has not yet provided health insurance, or you can’t find an insurance company that covers your coverage, you’ll need to start by getting a claim form from your health insurance company.
Your health insurance issuer will send you an updated claim form to fill out.
If it’s still not possible to get your claim form, you must file a lawsuit with the federal courts in your state.
If there are no pending lawsuits, you need to file a complaint with the IRS.
You can do this online or by calling the IRS toll-free number 1-877-411-4222.
You’ll need a copy of the complaint form, which you’ll then have to fill it out in person at the IRS office.
File your claim If your claim is denied, you are still entitled to get some of your money back.
You should file an administrative appeal to the IRS, and the agency will review the matter and determine if your claim should be allowed to go forward.
If all of the steps above are still not working, you could ask the IRS for a refund or other relief.
If so, you still need to pay the medical bill.
If both your state and the IRS decide your claim shouldn’t go forward, you and your attorney can negotiate a payment plan that would allow you to keep your medical coverage and pay the remaining bills out- of-pocket.
For example, you might be able to get an early termination benefit that lets you keep your health coverage for two months.
You may also be able obtain another health insurance plan through a state exchange or other insurance provider.
If a state or federal program or program doesn’t cover your medical costs, you don’t have to pay them.
However, you do have to contact your insurance company to get the information and help you figure out what plan to get.
You also may need help paying your medical debt and keeping your coverage up-to-date.

File an appeal if your plan isn’t affordable If your plan doesn’t provide you with enough money to cover the medical bills you incurred, you probably should appeal the decision to the court.
The appeals process varies depending on the specific state in which you live.
If appeals are denied, the insurance company may take legal action to recover the money owed to you.

File for bankruptcy If your medical claims were denied, there are a number of things you can do.
You could file for bankruptcy, a court-supervised bankruptcy.
