Health Insurance for individuals and Families

Health Insurance Application Tips

If you are ready to apply for an individual or family health insurance plan, read through the application tips below to make the process a smooth one:

Gather key medical and personal info:

Social Security Number
Names (and dose amount) of prescriptions
Dates of recent procedures or hospitalization
Billing info (credit card or direct withdrawal from checking/savings account)

Select the correct health insurance primary applicant.

If you are applying as a family, make sure you make the youngest spouse the primary applicant. Believe it or not, some insurance companies base their price on the age of the primary applicant so you will want to make sure that he or she is the youngest adult.

Write down application user ID.

Most applications will ask you to create a userID and password. You can make these up on the spot but don’t forget them. WE CANNOT ACCESS YOUR PASSWORD FOR YOU.  Also remember that these are case sensitive so remember if you used capital letters or not.

Set aside at least 15 minutes to finish your application.

Some applications take even longer so make sure you have a nice chunk of time and a reliable internet connection.
