Health Care Benefits

Protect your and your family’s health

Access to health care can help you live a better and longer life. Health insurance helps cover the costs of doctor and hospital visits, medication and treatment if you are injured or sick. How much of your medical costs are paid for depends on which health care benefit program you are eligible for.
