Thank you for your interest in an Individual Health or Dental Insurance Policy! Individual health plans for Michigan residents are available from a number of high-quality carriers. Carriers like Blue Cross and Blue Shield of Michigan* and HAP are only a few. Below we have divided your choices into two categories, Medically Underwritten plans and Non-Medically underwritten plans.
- Medically Underwritten This category contains the carriers who medically underwrite their individual members. This type of individual plan is not guaranteed issue as in small group plans typically offered by your employer. Medical underwriting is a process by which a carrier will look at your past medical history and present medical status to determine if they are able to extend coverage to you and your family members.
- Non-Medically Underwritten This category is Blue Cross and Blue Shield of Michigan*(BCBSM). Although BCBSM has some limited pre-existing limit conditions, they do not require you to provide them answers to medical history.
