United States Fire Insurance Company

United States Fire Insurance Company issues the popular Core Health Insuranceget a Core Health Insurance quote plans that are among the most widely available guaranteed issue limited benefit health coverage in the U.S. This plan recently expanded the number of coverage options as a supplemental coverage after passage of national health reform laws that may result in reduced employer-provided coverage for many Americans. Core Health Insurance is an affordable coverage that ranges from inexpensive (under $100 per month) to about $600 per month depending on age and options selected. Price reductions are achieved by reducing the maximum benefits payable for large claims. This policy is unique in that the same coverage is available to both businesses and individuals, giving it portability and versatility.

United States Fire Insurance Company also previously insured the "American Health Shield" short term medical insurance through Fairmont Specialty, also a division of Crum & Forster.

Overseas travel medical insurance is offered to individuals who need medical insurance outside of the U.S.  



Comments and Reviews

United States Fire Insurance Company does not issue major medical insurance in any state and has no plans, to our knowledge of issuing coverage that would be considered "qualified medical insurance" under PPACA health reform laws. All medical insurance policies issued by this company are limited benefit insurance.

Core Health Insurance has been the most popular online health insurance this year for Freedom Benefits users since 2008. We believe that its popularity is due to the compromise between price and coverage, lack of deductibles an liberal provisions for pre-existing medical conditions.

Consumer Complaints - The National Association of Insurance Commissioners (NAIC.org) reports that U.S. Fire Insurance Company had a total 83 consumer complaints reported in 2010 for all states, a reduction of 25% compared to the prior year. Compared to other insurance companies, the number of complaints, as compared to the amount of premium collected, was average for 2009 (1.05 index) and below average for 2010 (index not yet available). Limited benefit health insurance tends to generate more consumer complaints than more expensive health insurance if consumers do not understand the coverage. It is rare for a limited benefit policy to have fewer complaints than more expensive health plans based on the number of people insured, so we view this NAIC report as favorable for United States Fire Insurance Company. We believe this favorable result is the result of better consumer education through the use of Internet-based resources (like this Web site) that allows shoppers to compare the benefits, value and limitations of each health insurance option available.
