Three Online Tools to Calculate Cheap Health Insurance Options

Shopping for cheap health insurance doesn't top anyone's list of favorite hobbies – especially when confusing changes may affect your coverage options. But the search doesn't have to take over your life. These resources make it easy to understand plans and decide on the most economical option.


1. National Health Council's Cost Estimator

This estimator allows you to plug in your information and estimate your health care needs over the next year. It generates an estimate of your out-of-pocket expenses. You can even add the specific prescription medications you currently take to see just how much of it will be covered.


Why we like it –

This cost estimator uses detailed information to provide a relatively accurate idea of your out-of-pocket costs. 


What to consider –

As you know, some health issues are completely unforeseeable – like appendicitis, injuries from a car accident, or other unexpected health problems – and these will affect your bottom line.

 

2. The Kaiser Family Foundation (KFF) Health Insurance Marketplace Calculator

The KFF calculator asks for your income, the number of people in your family, and your location to generate an estimate of your health insurance premiums. 


Why we like it –

This calculator uses up-to-date information from real 201​6 premiums, so you'll get as current an estimate as possible. 


What to consider –

Keep in mind that every calculator provides estimates only. To get a solid idea of what you can expect and have your individual questions answered, you'll need to work with a real person, not just an online form. 

 

3. Unity’s Get a Quote Tool

This handy application just asks a few questions, then will quickly let you know if you may be eligible to receive a subsidy.


Why we like it –

It streamlines the process by offering a few quick questions, then the ability to see the subsidy you may qualify for. You can choose to see what plans fit your unique needs – and even see if your doctor is in a plan’s network. If you like what you see, you can enroll right online – and you’ll be signed up with the subsidies you qualify for.


What to consider –

If you want a full range of plans that offer access to the UW Health system, including the UW Hospital and Clinics and the American Family Children’s Hospital, this is the choice for you.
