East Coast Health Insurance is quickly becoming the Nebraska health insurance authority. Offering all major Nebraska health insurance companies from Aetna to United Health One, on-exchange to off-exchange, we are raising the bar for your online health insurance shopping experience.
Nebraska Health Insurance Plans
Nebraska residents have access to the private individual insurance market via the health insurance exchange and the traditional prviate market. Under the Affordable Care Act, better known as Obamacare, everyone has access to coverage, and some Nebraskans may qualify for subsidies to lower premiums and cost sharing.
For the uninsurable in Nebraska, there is a state risk pool called the Comprehensive Health Insurance Pool (or CHIP) for both HIPAA eligible individuals and families and for Nebraska residents that have can provide proof of uninsurability.
In order to prove uninsurability you need to have been rejected for an individual health insurance plan, offered health insurance plans with a longer pre-existing condition period, received an offer for coverage that is more expensive then the CHIP plan, or can demonstrate a serious medical condition. (I am not sure how to demonstrate a serious medical condition, but maybe performing a very bad magic show might suffice).
Nebraska Health Insurance Companies
Coventry One of Nebraska is one of my favorite Nebraska health insurance companies, for that matter one of my favorite companies due to their great network and benefits and of course their affordable premiums.
However in Lincoln, Nebraska they are not really affordable when compared to Humana One and United Health One which are actually very close in benefits and network (and are probably better.)
Coventry’s 2500 deductible plan with office visits and prescription coverage before the deductible costs $141 per month for my age group in Nebraska.
Humana One is actually tied for first place in our East Coast Health Insurance award for the most health insurance for the least amount of money. Normally, I would recommend Blue Cross Blue Shield of Nebraska but in this case Humana and United are actually a better choice.
Aetna has a limited choice of plans in Nebraska, however they should always be considered when shopping health insurance as they not only have a great network, but more importantly they take people with checkered medical histories.
If you find a plan you like from Aetna in your demographic or if you have any medical conditions then please consider Aetna even though they are a bit more expensive.
United Health One is the number one health insurance company in Lincoln, Nebraska in terms of price and network. However, Humana One is the better choice in Nebraska because it is domiciled in Nebraska.
Celtic offers Nebraska residents several options of PPO plans to choose from. Though their network is a little slimmer than some of the competing carriers, their plan options are similar and will certainly suffice. Their traditional plans with copayments before deductible are our recommendation, though they have more limited value plans and HSA options as well.
