Kansas City is the top location for commerce, the arts, sports, and education in the state. Kansas City is home to cook-offs, baseball, and art museums, and a myriad of outdoor fountains that express the city’s multiple personalities of a cultural sort. Downtown Kansas City offers the amenities one would expect from such a hub, including entertainment, museums, nightlife, and the nation’s second largest urban park. Swope Park is a unique attraction that contributes positively to the health of Kansas City residents, covering nearly 1,770 acres. With a bit of a commute, Kansas City residents can also enjoy the outdoors in state parks about an hour away.
The most populous city and metropolitan area in the state, Kansas City has over 463,000 residents, some of whom are bound to be uninsured due to state and national statistics.

Sample Kansas City Health Insurance Quote
For a 35-year-old female resident of Kansas City, Coventry One looks like the best available option at $160 per month. While she could settle for a lower number of copay office visits from Blue Cross Blue Shield of Kansas City for as low as $133, Coventry offers the most benefits for the lowest cost. This is a “GO” plan from Coventry, which means it only covers generic prescriptions, a minimal concern for this healthy applicant.
Only a few plans are rather competitive in this market, with UnitedHealthOne close behind Coventry at $163 with their Copay Select 80. Both plans cover an unlimited number of office visits, though Coventry has better reviews, and United has more prescription coverage (after a $500 deductible).
Once the premiums start to hit $200, the search is over. Though the other plans may offer a good network and decent coverage, Coventry One is the price and benefit leader for this Kansas City resident. Humana offers a plan for under $200, but for basically the same plan as UnitedHealthOne, the preference goes to United or Coventry.
