Our recommended carrier for 2018 Best Individual Health Insurance Plans Long Island NYC is Oscar.
2018 is expected again to be a very turbulent year for individual health insurance throughout the US. It is clear that the national trend is towards smaller and more regional carriers remaining in the marketplace such as Oscar, and away from the large national players such as Aetna, Anthem BCBS, and United Healthcare which are leaving marketplaces nationwide. While some might find it difficult to keep all of the providers they might once had access to, Oscar’s network is built on highly regarded providers and top notch hospitals at an affordable price.
While in NY there are some traditional Medicaid programs that have expanded into the individual market, and at this moment there ‘might’ be an expensive legacy carrier offering coverage for 2018, it is our opinion that Oscar is the only plan that will be able to offer an affordable premium along with top notch care and providers. In fact, Oscar’s Simple Silver EPO plan was our most sold plan last year and should be one of the plans you should highly consider.
