With all the changes in health care reform, looking for a good health plan might seem overwhelming. We may be able to help. Here are three ways Wisconsin residents may be able to find reliable health insurance quotes.
SEARCH FOR QUOTES AT HEALTHCARE.GOV
Finding health insurance quotes in Wisconsin may be easier now because of the Affordable Care Act. The plans that are available at healthcare.gov are ACA compliant and are sometimes called “qualified health plans”. That means that these health insurance plans provide essential health benefits, follow established limits on cost-sharing (like deductibles, copayments, and out-of-pocket maximum amounts) and meet other requirements.
MAKE SURE YOU'RE LOOKING AT LICENSED HEALTH INSURANCE COMPANIES
Before you begin searching for medical insurance quotes, you may want to confirm the credibility of the company or agent you're considering. Check with the Wisconsin Office of the Commissioner of Insurance (OCI) to see if the company or agent is licensed in the state. Wisconsin requires all insurance companies and agents to be properly licensed in the state. If the insurance company or agent you're considering using isn't licensed, it may be a big red flag. OCI may be reached at oci.wi.gov or 800.236.8517.
