California health insurance  -  Understanding California health coverage  -  Major Carriers

Major California Health Carriers

What exactly does "major carrier" mean and why is this important?

There are probably a dozen carriers that you can choose from on the California market but we purposely narrowed it down to 4-5 on the individual family market and 10+ on the group market to mirror the reality out there in the market.

These are the carriers that have a strong track record in the respective market and that's important.

Avoiding the bad carriers

We get calls almost daily from a person who has a second tier (or even third or fourth) carrier and they're running into major issues with sizeable claims. That's a bad place to be and we want to do everything we can to help our clients avoid this situation.

We also get the calls from clients who purchased a very inexpensive California health policy only to see it explode in costs later.

A good percentage of these people are unable to change carriers due to health issues so we have a bad situation there.

What Makes a Big Carrier

We look for carriers that have a wide benefits breadth (many plans to choose from with PPO, HMO, and HSA options), good and stable (key point there!) pricing over a period of 3-5 years, and a strong provider network. It doesn't help you to have cheap California health insurance that only works with a few doctors in your area. Based on these criteria, we have chosen the plans to quote in our engine.

Major California carriers

Currently, depending on the market segment you're looking at, Kaiser, Anthem Blue Cross, Blue Shield of California, Health Net, Aetna, United (group), and Pacificare are the main carriers in California.
