Individual Health Insurance
Beginning January 1st 2014, all health plans must be compliant with the Affordable Care Act (ACA). We offer a variety of individual health insurance plans that meet ACA requirements while giving you choice in your benefits and how much you pay in premiums.
Copayment plans are what most people think of as traditional plans. They offer a fixed copayment for things like primary care office visits and prescriptions. While you'll know what you're going to pay with copayment plans, they come at a higher premium. These plans are ideal for someone who wants predictable costs and doesn't mind paying more in premiums.
High Deductible plans have lower premiums than copayment plans. If you don't expect a lot of medical expenses and want to save money on premiums, these may be the plans for you. For these plans, you pay the full cost of your medical expenses until you meet your medical deductible. Then you pay a coinsurance percentage, sharing the cost with your Insurance Company until you reach your out-of-pocket limit. After that, your Insurance Company pays all covered costs for that calendar year.
Short Term plans are good if you are in between jobs, just starting a new job and waiting for coverage,a college student or recent graduate with no health coverage.
An International coverage plan may be available to you when traveling abroad.
