Atlanta, Georgia (March 1, 2010) - There is a lot of debate about health care recently, because of the current administration's focus on health care reform. However, some of the news make it sound like the health insurance companies are the bad guys. Coventry Health Care has been an active member of the industry's national association, America's Health Insurance Plans (AHIP). This organization, along with other members of the health plan community and Coventry, has been involved in proposing changes geared towards health care reform. Some of these proposed changes are similar to what the current administration is now proposing. They include removing pre-existing condition limitations, making health care more affordable, improving the quality of health care insurance products, and making health care insurance more accessible to all Americans.

The AHIP states that they want comprehensive health care reform that will cover all Americans, while still being affordable. They want medical care to be high quality and low cost. Health insurance companies are willing to bend the health cost curve to lower the costs to members, both individuals and families, as well as employers. Health insurance companies advocate bipartisan reform.

Coventry Health Care has many plans that are affordable and high quality and are available to individuals and families. They also offer group health plans to employers. Their individual plans include some wellness and preventive care. This is because Coventry believes that in order to prevent chronic illnesses in the future, members need to be provided with resources to improve their health now. The Coventry Health Care plans do not require referrals to see specialists. Many of their plans have benefits with required co-payments as low as $15 for vision, and $35 for physician's office visits. Emergency clinic visits can has a co-payment as low as $75.

According to Ted Officer, President of, the preferred agency of Coventry Health Care, "Coventry offers the lowest rates for the best benefits for individual and family health plans." This is why these two companies have partnered up to provide services to residents of the twenty-four states where Coventry offers health insurance products.

Coventry Health Care has a convenient online application, which can be found at Coventry has an extensive provider network, and can be a low cost alternative to COBRA. Coventry Health Care also does not increase renewals and does not practice teaser initial rate practices, so you can feel confident about the premium quote given to you.
