Affordable new plans are now offered to individuals and families that reside in Ohio. Self-employed persons can also find several low cost policies that reduce premiums without compromising important benefits such as preventive, major medical, office visits or prescriptions.
“2013 will bring a lot of changes to medical coverage here in Ohio, “said Policy Coordinator Steven Carlton. “There are many changes to new and existing policies because of all of the recent legislation that passed. And a big part of our job is to educate our customers and make sure they understand what impact these changes will have on their health care coverage.”
Live 2013 rates and policy details can be viewed on the website. Consumers can utilize the most advanced quote engines which enable easy comparisons of rates and benefits, and streamlined applications that can potentially be approved quicker.
“The big winner is the customer,” Carlton said. Whether they purchase a policy through Aetna, Anthem, UnitedHealthcare or any company, they know they are paying the lowest available prices on our website. And every type of policy is offered. Temporary plans, HSA contracts and comprehensive plans. They’re all there. That’s what Ohioquotes.com is all about. Helping customers get the most for their hard-earned dollar.”
Most carriers will cover pre-existing conditions if prior coverage was effective within the last 63 days. If no prior policy was active, then visitors to the website can apply for a policy, and will likely be approved if there are no major medical conditions.
The State Risk Pool may be able to offer a policy to applicants who have had applications denied and were not previously insured.
