(This web page highlights select plans for Individuals, not for Small Group or Medicare Plans)       

     For the first time Kaiser is offering the lowest cost plan on the market.   I really like Kaiser for their location centrality, quality doctors and one-stop service mentality.  Claim paperwork is simplified and you are always in-network.   Kaiser also has more board-certified doctors compared to other healthcare systems.  You have freedom of choice to pick and change providers as your needs change. I learned also that you can video-chat with doctors with a $0 copay if you have simple needs like a cold or need a prescription refilled.  Finally, Kaiser contracted so that all of the non-Kaiser Portland Clinics are In-Network for customer convenience.

Note:  The catastrophic plan is the lowest price plan, but is available only to those under age 30, and are not eligible for a tax credit through the Marketplace.    The HSA2800 plan is only offered Direct, not through the Marketplace
