Individual health insurance in California is for people who do not have group or government health options and need to purchase their own private health coverage. The market itself is very dynamic and frankly, confusing plus the shoppers are generally not well versed in health insurance terminology since they typically shop once every seven years for this type of coverage.
First, let's look at the key points to understand:
Individual is no longer medically underwritten. You do not have to qualify based on health.
Contracts are month to month which means that you can cancel any month and renew up to age 65 as long as payment is made.
Currently, there are 4 standardized benefit levels (Bronze, Silver, Gold, and Platinum)
Self employed individuals may be able to deduct 100% of this type of insurance.
Payment is generally not required immediately although the policy will not be "activated" until first payment is received.
Rates are standardized which means that the rates shown in our instant quote are best available on the market.
Maternity is mandated coverage on all new plans. Preventative is covered at 100%.
Dominant carriers in the California individual market are Anthem Blue Cross, Kaiser, Blue Shield of California, Health Net with smaller regional carriers in that order.
Here's the big change and real the gist of the ACA law itself..
We now have Open Enrollment windows (generally Nov 15th-Feb 15th) during which to apply or change plans. Otherwise, we need to qualify based on Special Enrollment triggers. We can help you evaluate if you fall in one of these categories.
