Broken Arrow Sample Health Insurance Quote
Selecting a cost and coverage range of $2500 deductible plans with 80/20 coinsurance and unlimited office visits, we created an example of how you can find a great balance for your budget. While other plans are less expensive, they will not cover quite as much, making it much more valuable to consider a plan with copays. For a 32-year-old healthy female living in Broken Arrow, health coverage of this sort starts at $158 per month from Coventry One, the price leader in many demographics. This plan includes office visits at a $25 copay, as well as emergency care and medications before your deductible. Coventry One also offers another affordable plan in this range with the option of generic drug coverage only for a lower premium.
BlueCross BlueShield is also worth considering for this resident, as their Health Check Select 2500 plan covers physician and specialist care at $15 per visit. You also have a choice of networks within the plan, offering either 70 or 80 percent coverage depending on which you choose. Coventry’s plan has an advantage over this one, however, as prescriptions are covered at coinsurance rather than a copay. Additionally, ER visits are included in the deductible. Maternity coverage is optional with these plans but will cost almost twice as much.
The best combination of benefits for a fair premium is available through Coventry for this applicant. If she were to have a less-than-perfect medical history, she may consider Aetna, as their underwriting rules benefit more sick people than other plans. This is why their premiums are more costly, in this case, priced at $255 per month (with no health problems). UnitedHealthOne may be worth considering for the low deductible, but they will only cover 70 percent of your medical expenses rather than the 80 percent provided by the other carriers.
