Looking for Health Insurance?


Parents understand better than most the importance of securing quality health insurance for their kids. After all, with coughs and colds, immunizations and wellness checks, frequent doctor’s visits are common. But if you’re looking for coverage for your child only, sweeping changes are taking shape and it’s not so easy to find child only health insurance in Ohio anymore. In fact, many major providers simply don’t offer stand alone plans. At Secure Health Options, we can help you locate the right child only plan to keep your child healthy and strong. With the right resources and some good information, securing quality coverage that you can feel confident about is just a few steps away.

Child Only Health Insurance in Ohio is Available

Despite what you may have heard, it is possible to find health insurance for a child 18 or younger without a parent or guardian having to be on the plan. In fact, the Affordable Care Act made it illegal for health insurance providers to refuse coverage to any child under 19, even with pre-existing conditions. That means you can get coverage with known medical issues. However, many Ohio companies no longer offer child only plans because of this new law, and it can be difficult to find reliable options.

Understanding Open Enrollment

Ohio is also one of a few states that chose to offer “open enrollment” for securing child only health insurance. What that means is that there are specific times during the year when a parent or guardian can purchase coverage from a private insurer. The important thing to remember about open enrollment is that it varies between providers and may not be the same for every company. Understanding open enrollment can be challenging, and without the right guidance, it’s easy to get overwhelmed.

Top providers in Ohio still offer reliable child only coverage with lower premiums, minimal out-of-pocket expenses and large networks. We understand it can be challenging to find the coverage you’ve come to expect and we’re here to help you find what you need at a price you can afford.  At Secure Health Options, we’re happy to help you navigate the world of insurance and we’re ready to take the uncertainty out of looking for and finding the peace of mind you deserve.
