Health care is a broad term that includes the provision of health services to the public, the provision, maintenance, and expansion of facilities, and the provision and maintenance of services in connection with the supply of goods and services.
The term includes health insurance coverage, insurance for the provision or maintenance of health benefits, and other health benefits.
The terms “health care” and “health coverage” include both individual and group insurance coverage.
Health insurance is a term used to describe an individual’s or group’s coverage of the risks associated with their health care activities, and is generally defined to include a policy of either employer-provided or government-sponsored coverage.
Employer-provided health insurance generally provides benefits such as health benefits that are required for all employees.
Federal and state governments generally provide insurance for employees, including state and local governments.
Private insurers provide health benefits and insurance to individuals or groups, such as small employers.
Health coverage generally refers to health insurance and its benefits.
Healthcare coverage includes coverage for the medical, dental, and vision services that individuals and families are required to provide in order to maintain and enhance their health, to prevent their death, or to prevent serious or chronic conditions.
Health care services are defined in terms of the benefits that individuals or families are expected to receive in order for them to maintain their health or to maintain the health of others.
Healthcare is generally regarded as an insurance product that protects against adverse events and other problems associated with the provision to the general public of health and medical services, including preventive care, diagnosis, treatment, and rehabilitation.
Health Care Insurance Coverage Coverage of the health coverage and services that a person or a group is entitled to receive and to provide is a major component of the coverage that a health insurance policy provides to the individual or group.
Health and medical care are generally regarded under this definition to be a “care service.”
The term “health insurance” means any type of coverage, including, but not limited to, a broad-based health insurance plan that includes, but is not limited of, a comprehensive health plan that provides coverage for medical, hospital, prescription drug, and medical device services and supplies, and a group health plan.
A health insurance carrier, whether public or private, may be a health care issuer or a health benefit issuer.
Health benefit means the provision by an individual or a family, whether in whole or in part, of the goods and/or services needed for the health and well-being of a person, or of a family in a group.
The provision of such goods and Services includes health care services and other medical, surgical, and surgical treatment.
A group health benefit is a health coverage provided by a health insurer to an individual, family, or group of individuals or to a group of families in a health plan under which the individual is or is not insured.
An individual, or family, is a person that is the primary beneficiary of a group plan.
Group insurance means a group or a single insurance policy that provides benefits for a group and for individuals and groups of individuals, and also for dependents and beneficiaries.
Health benefits and other benefits, including health care benefits, are not considered as a single item, but rather are included as separate items, and therefore, are treated as separate coverage.
The type of health coverage, the type of benefits, the types of medical and dental services that an individual and/ or a household may be required to pay, and/ Or the number of items covered by an insurance policy is also a factor that will determine how much coverage is provided.
In addition to the health insurance covered under an individual health insurance contract, the policy may include any type or combination of health benefit or other coverage, such that an additional health benefit can be obtained.
Insurance policies may be purchased through an individual retirement account (IRA), employer sponsored plan (ESOP), or individual’s individual plan.
Individual health insurance may be acquired through the purchase of an individual policy or through a group policy.
If an individual chooses to purchase an individual plan through an IRA, it may provide the same benefits and the same premiums as if the individual had purchased a group insurance policy.
For example, an individual may choose to purchase a group, single, or individual health coverage with an IRA as a means of obtaining health coverage.
An employer-sponsored health insurance (EIHI) may provide health coverage to employees and their dependents through an EIHI.

Some states and territories require employers to provide health insurance or health benefits in addition to health benefits under an IIC.
