Frequently Asked Questions
Why do I need private health insurance?
Health insurance supports the cost of medical care for you, your family, or your business. Without insurance, it’s up to you to pay the full cost of any care you receive, preventative or otherwise.
You may need private health insurance if your employer doesn’t offer you health insurance (e.g., you work part-time), you’re unemployed or self-employed, you’re a business owner, or you’ve recently retired.
How does private health insurance work?
You pay a monthly fee—known as a premium—to keep your healthcare coverage. Generally, the higher your premiums, the less you pay out of pocket.
Buying health insurance on your own is more expensive than sharing the cost of premiums with an employer. That’s why some insurance plans partner with healthcare providers and facilities to offer care at lower rates. This is known as managed care.
What is a PPO?
PPO stands for preferred provider organization. Unlike other types of managed care, PPO plan subscribers benefit from nationwide coverage. For instance—for families covered under My Private Health Insurance—out-of-state college students are free to seek care from local providers while staying covered.
Is My Private Health Insurance less expensive than COBRA?
COBRA costs aren’t shared with employers, which can make them quite expensive. It’s worth keeping in mind that COBRA insurance only provides you with the coverage you had under your employer—COBRA doesn’t include hospital care insurance, life insurance, or disability, among other types of coverage.
My Private Health Insurance can help you find an alternative to COBRA that is less costly and more inclusive.
What’s covered and what’s not?
Every plan has its limits. It’s important to understand what a plan covers and what it doesn’t. To gain a better understanding of benefits, premiums, and deductibles, get in touch with one of our agents today. We’ll help you find the perfect coverage for your needs.

Before working with My Private Health Insurance, I had absolutely no idea what I was doing when it came to finding health insurance. Thanks to David I now have a better understanding of how this whole industry works and have a health insurance plan that I am very happy with.

Thank you David and My Private Health Insurance for your professionalism and patience. You gained a lifetime customer!!
Having to figure out a new health insurance plan has got to be one of the most challenging things to do. But, Merris made the search for health coverage an easy, seamless and surprisingly enjoyable process! He provided myself and my family with an excellent health, dental, and vision plan AND saved us nearly $400 a month from the last insurance plan we had! I 100% recommend Merris and My Private Health Insurance!
Thomas and the entire team at My Private Health Insurance are incredible! They’re very knowledgeable, responsive and an overall joy to work with. Thomas went above and beyond to ensure that we came away with the best insurance plan for our family. It’s not easy to think of purchasing insurance as being pleasant but my experience with them over a period of about six months was. Thomas was well informed, honest, friendly and not in the least bit pushy. I genuinely felt like he was trying to find the best solution that fit our situation and needs. I highly recommend and would definitely use their services again!
I have been using My Private Health Insurance for many years and now they’re taking care of our whole family’s health insurance. David and Daniel are great! They are very clearly interested in educating and informing rather than making a quick sale.

Throughout my time with My Private Health Insurance, they’ve made the best health coverage recommendations while also staying up to date on the rapid changes in healthcare.
