If you’re a Georgia resident that needs health insurance benefits quickly, then look no further.  In my guide, you’ll be able to shop and compare medical, dental, and vision care and get coverage today.

Like everyone else in the United States, you have the option to get health care coverage from “Obamacare,” and that’s totally fine.  With that said, if you want more flexibility and control over your coverage, a short-term health insurance plan might be a better option.

According to the United States Census, approximately 15.7% of the population under the age of 65 in the state of Georgia did not have health insurance.  That’s almost 1.7 million Georgia residents without coverage.

If you’re in between jobs, your employer’s health insurance is too expensive, or your self-employed, check out your options below.

Short-Term Health Insurance

  • You can purchase coverage for up to 3 years. 
  • Preventive Care coverage can be offered.
  • Doctor’s office visits can be offered.
  • Prescription Drug coverage can be offered too.
  • Copay and Coinsurance options are available.
  • Optional Accident Insurance is available.
  • You can bundle Dental and/or Vision insurance as well.

Dental Insurance

Like any dental insurance plans, you pick and choose your coverage amount, and pay the monthly premium amount.

It’s self-explanatory.

Vision Insurance

Normally there is only 1 option with employer-sponsored vision plans, but sometimes you get to choose from 2 plans.

The difference between the 2 coverages is either contacts or glasses or contacts and glasses .

The options are self-explanatory, and fairly inexpensive either way.

Hospital Insurance

Let’s say you wanted to supplement the expenses you owe for hospital or doctor visits, especially when you have the bare minimum health insurance coverage currently.  Hospital Insurance and Fixed Indemnity Insurance is the solution just for that.

If you’re not putting a portion of your paycheck into a Health Savings Account (HSA), this insurance might be a better alternative.

Hospital Insurance can help offset out of pocket expenses for:

  • Doctor Visits
  • Wellness/Preventive
  • Pharmacy Service
  • Outpatient Services
  • Hospital Services
  • Surgical Services
  • Inpatient Hospital Confinement
  • Intensive Care Unit (ICU)
  • Emergency Room
  • Ambulance Transportation, including ground, water, or air.

TeleHealth Service

If you flat out can not afford health insurance, but you want to speak to a doctor in case you get sick or injured, there’s TeleHealth service, aka the Teladoc.

In a nutshell, you pay for a monthly subscription that allows you to speak to a general practice doctor, 24 hours a day, 7 days a week via telephone or mobile app.

At best, the doctor gives you medical advice and can prescribe you prescription drug medication.

International Health Insurance (Visitors Insurance)

If you’re visiting or relocating to the state of Georgia, you can get an international health insurance plan called Visitors Insurance.

Visitors Insurance is similar to primary health insurance plans, but for Non-U.S. residents.
