THREE ONLINE TOOLS TO CALCULATE CHEAP HEALTH INSURANCE OPTIONS

Shopping for cheap health insurance doesn't top anyone's list of favorite hobbies – especially when confusing changes may affect your coverage options. But the search doesn't have to take over your life. These resources make it easy to understand plans and decide on the most economical option.

1. The Kaiser Family Foundation (KFF) Health Insurance Marketplace Calculator
The KFF calculator asks for your income, the number of people in your family, and your location to generate an estimate of your health insurance premiums. 

WHY WE LIKE IT –
This calculator uses up-to-date information from real 2016 premiums, so you'll get as current an estimate as possible. 

WHAT TO CONSIDER –
Keep in mind that every calculator provides estimates only. To get a solid idea of what you can expect and have your individual questions answered, you'll need to work with a real person, not just an online form. 

2. UNITY’S GET A QUOTE TOOL
This handy application just asks a few questions, then will quickly let you know if you may be eligible to receive a subsidy.

WHY WE LIKE IT –
It streamlines the process by offering a few quick questions, then the ability to see the subsidy you may qualify for. You can choose to see what plans fit your unique needs – and even see if your doctor is in a plan’s network. If you like what you see, you can enroll right online – and you’ll be signed up with the subsidies you qualify for.


WHAT TO CONSIDER –
If you want a full range of plans that offer access to the UW Health system, including the UW Hospital and Clinics and the American Family Children’s Hospital, this is the choice for you.
