South Carolina’s only health insurance CO-OP, Consumers’ Choice Health Plan, will again offer competitive rates during the second nationwide open enrollment period which begins Saturday, November 15. Initial analyses show it to be the lowest health care coverage option in most of the state’s rating areas. Also, current members will see only a slight increase in their renewal rates, some will even see decreases.
Much of the Consumers’ Choice membership is made up of individual and family plans offered under the ACA (Affordable Care Act). The CO-OP also offers plans for small businesses through its ACA platform and in the private market.
“We’ve worked very hard to stay true to our mission of offering high-quality, affordable coverage and I’m proud of what our team has been able to accomplish,” said President and CEO Jerry Burgess . As the most affordable in most areas of South Carolina, shoppers will be able to get the coverage they need for themselves and their families with an substantial provider network to support that,” he added.
Consumers’ Choice Health Plan has the majority of hospital networks across the state and a team that remains committed to growing the provider network for its members.
