We Offer a Variety of Different Plan Options

What Does Off-Exchange Health Insurance Mean?

Off-exchange describes the plans that are available outside of the public exchange environment (or in the open market). The number one advantage to choosing off-exchange is the greater plan choice. This type of exchange can provide you with a choice of a different carrier, network, or drug list. Basically, choices that you can’t find on the exchange.

TEN ESSENTIAL BENEFITS

Under the Affordable Care Act, off-exchange insurance plans are obligated to cover the ten essential benefits, which are the ten categories of healthcare services that all health insurance plans are required to cover by law. These ten essential benefits include:

  • Ambulatory patient services
  • Emergency services
  • Hospitalization for surgery, overnight stays, and other conditions
  • Pregnancy, maternity, and newborn care
  • Mental health and substance use disorder services
  • Prescription drugs
  • Rehabilitative and habilitative services and treatment
  • Laboratory services
  • Preventive and wellness services, and chronic disease management
  • Pediatric services, which include dental and vision coverage for children

 

ADVANTAGES OF SHOPPING FOR HEALTH INSURANCE OUTSIDE AN EXCHANGE:

GREATER CHOICE

The number one reason to buy off-exchange is the variety of choices. Health insurance companies offer a lot of health plans that are not available through the exchange. The more choices you have, the better the opportunity to tailor a policy to meet your specific needs.

MORE PROVIDERS IN YOUR NETWORK

Another great benefit to shopping off-exchange is the greater network of healthcare providers included in your plan. Buying off-exchange can give you access to larger provider networks and preferred doctors or hospitals that aren’t included in the plan on the exchange.

Lowering Your Out of Pocket Risks

Off-exchange plans have become more and more popular as the days of the marketplace are becoming more and more untenable. Things like PPO networks disappearing can mean fewer doctors to choose from, prescription co-pays eliminated, and out of control price increases. We have plans that are both ACA compliant and affordable. Off-exchange plans are considerably less than on exchange plans and with our help, your out of pocket risks are very limited. We view off-exchange plans as the coming future with more people buying these plans with every passing day.
