Services[edit]

Individual health insurance[edit]

Individual health insurance can be sold solely to a parent, dependant child or a family. How this type of health insurance is marketed and sold can differ throughout each state. Benefits of individual health insurance differ from group plans that businesses provide their employees. Prices for individual health plans are also generally higher than other plans. The company officials stated the funds will be used to fuel growth in online customer acquisition and to secure a position as a premier marketplace for health insurance.[3]

Family health insurance[edit]

The difference between the individual health plan and the family health plan is the deductible. If a family chooses an insurance plan with a deductible, each member of the family is given their own deductible as well as one deductible for the whole family. Before the insurance begins to pay for the family’s care, each family member must reach their separate deductible amount OR the family deductible must be met. Some family health insurance plans will reimburse the family if they exceed their deductible amount.
