Published on September 11, 2018


If you’re in the market for an affordable health insurance plan, you may find that shopping online is a great place to find it. Keep reading to see how online markets, like eHealth, have a wide selection and plenty of resources to help you shop, compare, and apply for affordable health insurance plans with ease (and how all of that might be the best way to find affordable health insurance that works for your health needs and budget).

What tools are there to find affordable health insurance online?

Just by looking at the prices of the first few plans you see, you might think that all coverage is expensive. But if you do your research and shop around for awhile, you may have more luck finding something that will be affordable for you. The problem is—not everyone has the time to become an insurance expert, and that’s where eHealth comes in. Some of our online tools and resources designed with you in mind include;

  • Search by area function. From eHealth’s homepage, you can search for any form of coverage that you might need. Whether you’re looking for a standard health policy for your family or a supplemental plan that offers dental or vision coverage, you’ll be able to find it on our site. We can help you find private plans that qualify under the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act, as well as plenty of alternative products. After entering some basic information about yourself, you’ll have access to a vast selection of affordable health insurance plans to compare.
  • Free quotes on plans. To make sure you’re getting the most affordable health insurance that still meets your coverage needs, you need to know exactly what each available plan costs. We offer free quotes on all the health insurance featured on our site. You’ll have no trouble comparing plans and making sure you’re getting the best deal on online health insurance.
  • Network Navigation. Health insurers usually build a network of care providers and facilities, and encourage you to receive care only within that network. When you search for online health insurance on eHealth, you can find tools that let you know networks a specific doctor is in, or all the doctors in a specific network. Keep in mind that each insurance plan periodically updates its list of in-network doctors and providers, so always double check coverage with both the plan and the doctor or provider before incurring medical expenses.

With these online tools, you can make your online health insurance shopping experience personalized to your health care needs, budget, and area. If you want more personalization, you can also find resources to talk on the phone, over email, or through our 24/7 chat function.
