eHealth Announces Partnership with The IHC Group

On Tuesday, eHealth, Inc. announced a new partnership with The IHC Group to offer medical insurance packages to customers unable to afford health insurance plans that meet all the benefit requirements with the Affordable Care Act (the ACA, or Obamacare).

From the official word:

These medical insurance packages were developed in partnership with The IHC Group to provide an affordable alternative for people who cannot afford Obamacare-compliant major medical health insurance coverage but who still want meaningful protection against unexpected medical expenses. Medical insurance packages developed by The IHC Group will be available in 37 states and the District of Columbia and provide a single point of service when people need to use their benefits.

These new packages will be available to customers on November 1, when the 2018 open enrollment period is scheduled to begin.

Offerings may differ by state but these medical insurance packages include varying combinations of both insurance and non-insurance products, such as short-term medical insurance, supplemental (GAP) insurance, fixed-indemnity insurance, telemedicine benefits, prescription drug discount benefits, and medical advocacy services.

“Our partnership with The IHC Group will allow us to create affordable products for our customers who cannot afford major medical Obamacare coverage,” said eHealth CEO Scott Flanders. “We’ve listened to our customers and developed these medical insurance packages to better serve those customers who are not getting what they need from our Obamacare products.”
