Get Indiana individual health insurance plan quotes at direct rates. Policies (Under age-65 and Senior Medicare) are offered from major insurers, including Anthem Blue Cross, UnitedHealthcare, Molina, Ambetter, Aetna, Humana, and CareSource. We research and compare catastrophic, comprehensive and Health Savings Accounts (HSA) plans and offer the most competitive medical rates available to consumers.
If you need personal single, family, Senior, or HSA coverage, we review all of the large (and small) companies, so that you can find a plan that is affordable, and also provides the benefits that you are most likely to utilize. We never use any type of “limited discount” plan and we also update our website daily. Annually, carriers change rates and benefits. When this occurs, we quickly review those changes and make certain you are receiving all available discounts.Federal subsidies are often available on Marketplace plans, depending upon your household income.
If you miss Open Enrollment, you can get information here about Special Enrollment Periods that allow you to purchase low-cost plans throughout the entire year. If you qualify, the federal subsidy will be applied as an instant tax credit to help you lower the premium. The most common exemption is when you lose group benefits through an employer. Generally, you have 60 days to secure an alternative and replacement policy. You may also choose less expensive non-compliant plans, although benefits will be reduced and pre-existing conditions may not be covered. Anthem and UnitedHealthcare provide affordable non-Obamacare options throughout the year.

We help you find suitable coverage since we represent you…not the insurance carriers. There are no fees or invasive forms to complete. All available plans can be easily and quickly viewed. Open Enrollment periods may impact which plans are available, and whether medical underwriting is required. Qualified plans have no fees, although several carriers charge small application fees with their temporary plans. “Limited Benefit Plans” have larger application or enrollment fees, although they are not offered through our website.
We pride ourselves on being extremely experienced (since 1980), knowledgeable, but also unbiased. For example, if Anthem BC is the best choice, we’ll tell you. If UnitedHealthcare provides the best option, we’ll tell you. If you’re taking an expensive non-generic Brand medication that is subject to a deductible, we’ll help you find the cheapest method (provided by your contract) to buy the drugs (mail-order, for example), and search for the carrier that doesn’t force you to meet a deductible.Senior Medicare plans with prescription drug benefits have a formulary, and we also assist with comparing your current medications with the insurance company formulary list.
For Seniors, it’s very important to properly compare Advantage, Part D Plan, and Supplement options, and understand the impact of differences in benefits and potential out-of-pocket expenses, including differences in prescription drug benefits. Prices and benefits can change each year, and carriers also publish new formulary lists for their covered prescription drugs. Medigap plans are designed to reduce your out-of-pocket expenses. Prices of coverage, formulary lists, copays, deductibles, and service areas can change each year.
When you view insurance prices on this website, you can easily pick the type of coverage you need. For instance, if you need low-cost high-deductible coverage, you can choose plans that will offer quality major medical benefits (and preventive coverage) at the best rates. If comprehensive coverage is needed, there are many plans that offer office visit and prescription benefits that are not subject to a deductible. Specific policies combine both concepts in Bronze, Silver, Gold, and Platinum tiers.
Private Vs. Employer-Provided
Although the majority of Americans have employer-provided healthcare, each year, the number of persons that purchase private plans increases. And this trend will probably continue unless the Affordable Care Act legislation is repealed (which is unlikely). Future Presidential elections, regardless of who wins, is unlikely to result in a major upheaval of Obamacare. However, several small changes and modifications are likely. Additional low-cost plans may be introduced, along with prescription drug cost relief. HSA-expansion is frequently discussed, and Open Enrollment periods are frequently expanded. Carriers including UnitedHealthcare and Aetna may return to offer Marketplace plans.
Personal coverage will remain popular because the tax imposed on employers for not offering benefits to employees is far less than paying for group benefits. And because of the expense, companies with a relatively small number of workers, often opt to allow their employees to enroll in Marketplace coverage, which is a situation we can save you thousands of dollars in premium and potential out-of-pocket expenses. However, unless an employer’s group coverage is determined to be “unaffordable,” when purchasing an Exchange plan, federal subsidies are not available.
How Does Obamacare Effect Indiana
The Affordable Care Act has expanded the number of persons that purchase policies, especially for those that were previously not covered. We will continue to offer direct Exchange rates and assist in applying for quality coverage. You may qualify for a federal tax subsidy, so ask us to help you calculate your credit. It will take less than a minute to determine your eligibility and size of the instant tax credit. Non-Obamacare options can also be considered. The cost is often substantially less, although plan designs and benefits are different. Coverage is offered at any time, and durations of up to 36 months may be available.
As one of the most trusted authorities in the state for providing personal medical quotes, we also provide current reform and Exchange information updates and review what impact it has on your rates and benefits. If Medicare or Medicaid is available, we will also show you the benefits and costs of those options, since they may meet your financial needs the best. In rare situations, an applicant may be “dual-eligible,” or qualify for both Medicaid and Medicare. Specific Medicare Advantage (MA) plans may be available.
Private rates often cost less than many employer-provided group plans. Depending on the size of the group, contributions of the employer, and your current health, medical coverage could be a viable alternative worth consideration. Since coverages may differ, we believe it is very important to discuss and compare any differences so you don’t jeopardize any existing benefits.
NOTE: For individuals that were unable to purchase medical benefits because of pre-existing conditions, the Indiana Comprehensive Health Insurance Association (ICHIA) offered coverage until four years ago. To be eligible, you must have been turned down by at least one insurance company, have lived in Indiana for at least 12 months and not been eligible for Medicaid. This program has been terminated, since all Marketplace policies are “guarantee-issue.”
