Each day we research and update affordable individual and family policies and illustrate the lowest rates available for Hoosier State residents.

In the future, if these companies return, we will include them in our quote engine. Exchange availability is different each year.

Indiana “short-term temporary” coverage is perhaps the cheapest option available. Rates are almost always 40%-60% less than popular comprehensive plans and this type of policy is ideal if you are unemployed, just graduating, between jobs or are waiting for Medicare. For example, a healthy 30-year old male can purchase short-term coverage for only $39 ($5,000 deductible) or $43 ($2,500 deductible) through HCC Life.
Lower deductibles are available through HCC and most other carriers. UHC (also known as "Golden Rule)," also offers inexpensive options, and we'll be happy to review all of the companies for you. Deductibles as low as $500 are available.
Important Note: Short-term policies are not eligible for instant tax-credit subsidies and generally, any medical expenses you incur from pre-existing conditions will not be paid. Also, since maternity is often excluded, temporary plans are not considered "qualified," and you may be subject to a 2% household income tax.
How To Lower Your Premium
Many other affordable options can be viewed by simply raising the deductible. Often, premiums will reduce by hundreds of dollars per month without having any impact on covered office visits and prescriptions. Increasing coinsurance and copays will also save money, especially when non-generic prescriptions are impacted.
For example, UnitedHealthcare's "Choice" and Anthem's "Pathway X" plans feature unlimited covered office visits (both primary care and specialist), and comprehensive prescription and preventive benefits. By raising the deductible, you can potentially save thousands of premium dollars each year. This means considering a Bronze-tier plan instead of a Silver-tier or Gold-tier plan.
Other low cost policies prior to 2014 were “Saver” and Value” plans offered by UnitedHealthCare and Anthem. Typically, they included limited office visit benefits, generic and formulary prescription coverage and higher out-of-pocket expenses on major medical claims. “Saver” and “Value” policies were cheap alternatives to higher-priced plans.
If you were being treated for a major condition or were uninsurable prior to 2014, the Indiana Comprehensive Health Insurance Association (ICHIA) offered coverage to individuals and families who could not qualify for medical insurance coverage because of their pre-existing conditions.The program was extended for one month to January 31st (2014) before ending. With Marketplace policies readily available, there was no longer a need to continue the ICHIA.
To qualify for benefits, you had to have been previously denied for coverage and not be eligible for Medicare. Additional qualifications also had to be met. Of course, starting in 2014, pre-existing conditions were not a factor when underwriting an application.
