National Health Insurance Companies
UnitedHealthcare, Anthem and Aetna
By the time you’ve read this, numerous acquisitions spawned by the Affordable Care Act have effectively combined the largest health insurance companies in the U.S.
After these transactions, Kaiser Permanente, Anthem, Humana, and Aetna are the only options in many states. Additional health plans such as Molina and Ambetter have also established long-term individual health plan options in various states nationwide. UnitedHealthcare offers primarily group, Medicare, and short term health plans and supplemental insurance for individuals. The familiar brand pulled its long term (on and off-exchange) individual and family health products in nearly every state starting in 2016.

And as far as benefits go, the carrier is no worse than anyone else. However, certain health insurance plans can vary greatly from state to state.
In Florida for instance, most of our plans don’t have an emergency room copayment because our hospitals are so expensive due to the uninsured. So any plan in South Florida that has an emergency room copayment before the deductible is considered a luxury.
