Welcome to East Coast Health Insurance’s medical insurance website. The purpose of this website is to demystify the world of medical insurance for the average individual and family.
We are not a lead company, we are actual insurance brokers, and this website will offer health insurance quotes from major carriers, and should you find one you like, you can apply online in the privacy of your home.
Once you pick a plan, the application process takes place on the secure carrier’s website. If you get stuck, our licensed agents are standing by at 888 803 5917 to help you 16 hours a day, 6 days a week.
It is almost impossible for ordinary consumers to make genuinely informed choices without understanding how the business of medical insurance works; what the different marketing channels for buying policies are; and, what is or is not typically covered by a given kind of policy. Unfortunately, if the wrong choices are made and a medical catastrophe occurs, the consequences can be all too interesting, frightening, and life-changing.
However, if you feel equipped to purchase health insurance on your own, we make it easy. Our quote engine above will show every reputable carrier that we offer including Aetna, Blue Cross Blue Shield, Cigna, Coventry, Humana, and United Health One.
Those are our national medical insurance companies, we also offer over 100 smaller, regional companies in your area. East Coast Health Insurance, in fact has a licensing department, headed by Jennifer. If you feel we are missing a carrier feel free to call her at 888 803 5917 or fill out our contact/comment form.
