"We've designed these plans to help the greatest number of people possible. Anyone who wants to save money on their healthcare can join Reassurance Health: people with or without health insurance; people who have been laid off; single or married; young or old," said DiBenedetto.

Because Reassurance Health is not insurance, there are no physical examinations or personal restrictions other than a 12-month waiting period on pre-existing conditions. These plans are not available in Florida, Kentucky, Connecticut, New Jersey, Nevada, Oregon, Texas, Vermont and Washington.
