For a more clear understanding of how to shop for health insurance in Orlando, we created a sample quote and chose the most affordable plans. Our applicant was a 28-year-old female resident of Orlando, who is very healthy and does not smoke. She is searching for a plan with the highest possible number of benefits and the lowest cost sharing and monthly rates. There are several options that meet these standards, all of which are PPOs, which gives members more provider choices.
Below are the best selections we found from each carrier in Orlando, though some do not have unlimited office visits, such as the Celtic plan. Though their $15 copay sounds like a great deal, there are only two covered visits, primary care and specialist combined, for the entire year. Other plans, such as Humana, Cigna, and United do not place a limit on the number of non-preventive office visits you use throughout the year.
