What Is A Good Health Insurance For The Self-employed?

Postby Trucker » Tue Oct 03, 2017 3:00 am

I work for a small business and have Cosi through Medical Mutual. I think they may cost a little more than Blue Cross, but we've never had a problem in 12 years. Call around to doctor's offices in your area or your particular doctor and find out if they take the insurance before you sign up for anything.

Individual Care Blue or IC Blue is a decent Blue Cross plan.
If you are healthy then check out Humana.


Try a local insurance Agent.
Some states have different options than others.

Part of the answer depends on the state you live in. Health insurance is governed by state law for the most part. For most states you have two options, individual insurance (insurance not partially funded by a company), and group insurance. Individual health insurance is typically similar to the coverage you can get as part of business group. However, usually it does not cover maternity costs. Most states also allow individual plans to be medically underwritten. That means if you are not very healthy they can charge you more, not cover certain things, or not offer you coverage at all. Plans vary widely from carrier to carrier because there is loose government regulation of individual health insurance policies. If you have heard of the company before be wary, if you haven't heard of them before it's best to walk away. Look for a good plan design like a PPO, or a POS. Group health insurance would be purchased by your business, and would list you and your family as a member of that group. You cannot be turned down, but in some state you can be charged more for being unhealthy. The coverage is typically very regulated by the state making the plans pretty similar from one company to the next. Just choose a deductible and max out of pocket you think you can afford. As far as cost is concerned group insurance will be much more expensive. You have the ability to split some of the cost with your employees, but it will still be expensive. Here is a quick example for Colorado, coverage for a single 30 year old male would cost: Individual $151 per month Group $435 per month. What I would do if I were you, get individual coverage if your healthy, and stick with that as long as it works for you and your business. Maybe offer employees a higher wage due to not covering health benefits and tell them about individual health coverage. Then if at some point you find your employees really need a plan that does not have medical underwriting you can get group insurance. Find an insurance broker to deal with as well. It will take some of the pain out of it. A little known fact the price of the coverage is locked in by law. That means you can get a broker to find the best plan for you and it doesn't cost any more money. Health insurance brokers are one of the few actually free services out there.

A lot depends on where you live.
If in the USA then check out the HMOs as well as other plans.
I had Kaiser for many years and also had Blue shield for a while.
I liked the HMO idea better.
