Guidelines and Changes from 2009 to 2010
Type of Coverage
A Health Savings Account (HSA) is an affordable option to traditional medical coverage that offers Ohio residents an alternative method to pay for their health care. HSAs enable you to pay for current medical, dental, and vision expenses, and save for future qualified medical expenses on a tax-free basis. Most major companies offer them. The most competitive rates are offered by Anthem Blue Cross, Medical Mutual, Aetna, UnitedHealthOne and Humana. Several smaller carriers offer policies, although their prices are not as competitive.
You must be covered under a High Deductible Health Plan (HDHP) to qualify to make a contribution. An HDHP is an inexpensive policy that costs substantially less than a traditional plan, and offers you the opportunity to deposit the money you save into the HSA. You can choose the level of risk (if any) you would like to take, or simply deposit funds in a “fixed interest” account.
We research all Group and private plan options for consumers. Regardless where you live or your what medical conditions exist, our shopping helps you find lower premiums. Only the highest-quality plans are considered with “qualified” policies offering preventive coverage that is not subject to a deductible. The quoted rates are the lowest allowable by the state, since premiums are mandated. That ultimately protects the consumer.
