Exploring Affordable Health Coverage in Georgia
When looking for cheap health insurance in Georgia, the first thing you should understand is that policies with the lowest monthly payments (your insurance Premium) might not be your best option.
The REAL price of health coverage depends on many variables. Deductibles and co-pays increase costs, while discounts like premium tax relief and a state insurance subsidy can LOWER your medical expenses. A premium might look high at first, but the total amount you spend on medical services could be much lower!
For those shopping for Medicare add-ons, Georgia has many options. Georgia has only 16% enrollment in Medicare, about 38% of those are enrolled in Medicare Advantage plans. Medicare Advantage and Medicare supplemental plans could save you a LOT of money.

- Prescription drugs
- Ambulatory patient services (hospital services that don’t need an overnight stay)
- Laboratory services
- Maternity and newborn care
- Pediatric services (for children), including dental and vision care
- Mental health and substance abuse services
- Preventive and wellness services, including chronic disease management
- Rehabilitative/habilitative services and devices

Georgia uses a Federally facilitated health insurance exchange. This Exchange does NOT regulate short term health insurance plans. While short term plans have their usefulness, they are NOT bound by the Affordable Care Act mandates and are NOT eligible for premium tax relief.
Georgia is a party to the Texas-led attempt to invalidate the ACA. The case is currently before the courts and any ruling probably will not affect your 2021 the health insurance plans.
