Easily review all plans in your area, and customize the copays, deductibles, and rate that fits your budget.
We also help you understand and calculate your free federal subsidy that can reduce your premium. Both subsidized Obamacare and non-ACA plans are available. Enrolling in a new plan takes only 15-20 minutes. By comparing coinsurance, drug benefits, and maximum out-of-pocket expenses, inexpensive and reasonably-priced plans can be reviewed.

Our free guides help you find the best policy for subsidized and non-Obamacare plans. Policies are offered with comprehensive office visit and prescription drug benefits, along with low-cost major medical catastrophic benefits. Shop Anthem Blue Cross, Medical Mutual, UnitedHealthcare, Humana, Cigna, SummaCare, and other carriers.
You can also view Senior Medigap plans offered in the Buckeye State. Choose among Medicare Advantage, Supplement, and Part D prescription drug coverage offered by multiple companies. If you have reached age 65, you are probably eligible for benefits. Original Medicare (Parts A and B) does not provide complete coverage for all expenses, including hospital stays, skilled nursing, and doctor bills. Twelve standardized plans are offered (A through L) with requirements and limitations fully explained. A high-deductible Plan F option provides 100% coverage after the deductible has been met.
Ohio Part D prescription drug plans are offered by the following companies: EnvisionRxPlus, WellCare, Aetna, Cigna-HealthSpring, Express Scripts, Mutual Of Omaha, Humana, AARP, SilverScript, and Anthem. CMS (Centers for Medicaid and Medicare Services) plan ratings provide a system that compares plans with 1-5 star designations. Rx Cost info rating, Plan ID, Summary Star Rating, and formulary drug lists are also provided. CMS also provides a unique ID for each plan and designates whether gap coverage is included. The standard deductible is $435.
Your free under-65 Marketplace quotes are the best available prices allowed by each carrier, and there are no costs or obligations. We also discuss and review the impact that the Affordable Care Act and the current Administration will have on your specific situation. New plans and carriers may enter the marketplace in future years. Additional budget-friendly high-deductible options may also be introduced, along with flexible temporary plans.

HealthSpan, Premier, Assurant, and InHealth no longer underwrite private individual policies. Several Co-Op companies could not sustain profits and ceased writing business. Many carriers offer Medigap options, but do not offer Exchange plans (UnitedHealthcare, Aetna, Humana, and Cigna). Small business, disability, life, dental, vision, and employee-benefit contracts are offered in all counties. Self-employed persons can review many low-cost options.

Employers with less than 50 employees can also obtain benefits through the SHOP Exchange. Self-employed persons can take advantage of several tax deductions including HSA plans.
Many Affordable Plan Options
Quality benefits can be affordable. There are many policies that can fit your budget and we do the research. These plans help you when you have a claim, and feature the coverage you are likely to utilize. If you have pre-existing conditions, or you have been denied coverage in the past, you do not have to answer any medical questions on the short application. You can not be turned down during Open Enrollment, or if you have a qualifying life event, which generates a “Special Enrollment Period.”
Budget-friendly plans are available in big cities, such as Cleveland, Cincinnati, Dayton, Akron, Columbus, Canton, and Toledo, along with smaller cities, such as Dublin, Massillon, Hilliard, Sandusky, Centerville, Loveland, Athens, and Oxford. Provider networks are customized, so that there is a greater chance to cover the physician, specialist, hospital, Urgent Care, or other medical facility that you prefer to visit. Inpatient and outpatient expenses, along with counseling, therapy, mental health, ER, and preventative expenses are covered on all qualified plans.
Catastrophic, comprehensive, self-employed and HSA health plans are reviewed, so we can properly recommend the best policy for you. And as your needs change, and you and your family grow older, we’ll be here to review your coverage. Customized coverage helps minimize the cost of expensive medications and chronic treatment, potentially saving thousands of dollars in premiums and out-of-pocket expenses.
Alternative Christian medical cost-sharing plans are also offered. However, these types of policies are not regulated by the state, and do not guarantee the payment of medical expenses. Members share each other’s medical bills, and a network of participating doctors and hospitals provide discounts.
Inexpensive Temporary Medical Plans
If benefits are only required for several months, short-term health insurance plans may be suitable. Temporary policies often cost less than $70 per month, although deductibles and coinsurance often must be met, before preventative and non-preventative expenses are paid. Policies can be purchased for 1-12 months, with office visits and prescription drugs included on some plans. These options are popular if you miss an Open Enrollment deadline, or have no major health conditions and do not qualify for a subsidy.
Temporary plans typically feature premiums approximately 40%-70% less than unsubsidized policies. Nationwide provider networks are offered with UnitedHealthcare and National General (Aetna network). Companion Life offers inexpensive options that can be kept up to 12 months. Deductibles as high as $10,000 are offered with indemnity plans.
All Marketplace (Exchange) plans contain required essential health benefits, although deductibles, copays, and your out-of-pocket costs can vary. These benefits include:
Preventative services including annual routine physicals, mammograms, and child well-visits
Lab and x-rays
Prescription drugs (Tiers 1, 2, 3, 4, and Specialty)
Inpatient and outpatient Hospital
Emergency Room Services (including Urgent Care)
Maternity and newborn services
Pediatric vision and dental
Substance abuse and mental health
The Obamacare options are classified as “Metal” policies. Platinum is the most expensive option, followed by Gold, Silver and Bronze. It is possible that all of your premium could be paid by a federal subsidy. Platinum-tier plans are designed to pay 90% of your expected medical expenses, Gold-tier plans – 80%, Silver-tier plans – 70%, and Bronze-tier plans – 60%. As previously mentioned, President Trump’s initiatives may repeal or drastically change the ACA Legislation. If completed, a new portfolio of plan options would be created, and you will be able to review options and easily apply for benefits.
The lower your household modified adjusted gross income (MAGI), the larger your financial aid will be. We quickly determine if you are eligible for aid and what amount you will receive. CHIP and Medicaid are available if your household income meets Federal Poverty Level (FPL) guidelines. You can also choose to select a policy that does not receive federal aid. Medicare-eligible Seniors can not enroll in Exchange plans.
We’ll teach you the things you should know about your policy. For example, what if you have more than a 63-day lapse in coverage? What about a 90-day lapse? Do you need a COBRA or a HIPAA plan? How often should you shop around and change policies? What if I only need benefits for a few months? Are special student plans offered? Is an HSA a good idea for us? When is the best time to apply for Medicare benefits? Is a Medigap plan needed? Do you need Part D prescription drug benefits? We help you with all of these concerns and any others you may have.
Lowest Available Rates
Paying less by “purchasing direct” for some of the items we buy is often possible, but not insurance! Many Quote Services like to advertise that by “buying here direct,” you are saving money. Quite simply, this is not true. Any individual or agency in Ohio that offers insurance, must be licensed by the Department of Insurance (ODI). No broker or Agency can offer you a “special price.” However, we still give you the choice of applying with the free help from a broker or purchasing direct. Online and phone enrollment is available.
Several of the cheapest available plans are: Medical Mutual Market HMO 7900, Medical Mutual Market HMO 6750 HSA, Anthem Bronze Pathway X HMO 7900, Anthem Bronze Pathway X HMO 6000, CareSource Marketplace Bronze, Ambetter Balanced Care 11, and Ambetter Balanced Care 5. If approved for a federal subsidy, deductibles and copays will reduce on Silver-tier plans.
Rates must be approved by the ODI and can not differ from one broker to another. Not even a nickle! Anyone can sell you health insurance. But medical plans are our specialty, and we ensure you receive the best plan for your money. We also take your right of privacy very seriously and continuously update and upgrade the security of this website. When legislative changes occur (such as the new Trump Administration plans), we show you the impact it has on your budget and benefits.
Ohio Health Insurance coverage is just a click away. We help you find affordable medical benefits, and make it easy to enroll for a policy. Whether you need to find on or off Marketplace coverage, we take care of the shopping so you save. Multiple company comparisons are customized to match your priorities.
