California Health Insurance Companies – List of 82 Companies

California health insurance companies can be divided into three categories:

  • Companies providing only group health insurance coverage
  • Companies providing only individual health insurance coverage
  • Companies providing both individual and group health insurance coverage

The raw data (list of California Health Insurance Companies) is taken from California Department of Insurance website. While working on the raw data I found some inaccuracies which I have mentioned in the lists below.

Please note most of the companies below only sell health insurance.  Most do not sell car insurancehomeowners insurance, or business insurance.

California Health Insurance Companies Providing Only Group Health Insurance

There are 20 health insurance companies in California which offer only group health insurance. These companies are listed below in alphabetic order.

  1. Allianz Life Insurance Company of North America – Domicile of Minnesota, Life & Disability insurance company. Company website
  2. American Alternatives Insurance Corporation – Incorporated in the State of Delaware this is a Property and Casualty insurance company.
  3. Fidelity Life Association – Life and Disability insurance company. Fidelity Life Association is domicile of Illinois.
  4. Great-West Life & Annuity Insurance Company – It is an indirect, wholly owned subsidiary of Great-West LifeCo Inc. This insurance company operates in California as a Life & Disability Insurance company. The company provides employer sponsored retirement savings plans. I was not able to find website for this company. Its only presence on Internet is a page on parent company’s (Great-West LifeCo Inc) website. Great-West LifeCo itself is a part of Great-West Financial. California Department of Insurance website incorrectly mentions Cigna as the parent company. The department probably confused Great-West Life & Annuity Insurance company with Cigna (Great West Health). Great West Health’s website has moved.

  1. Health insurance shloud be considered a human right as it is in every other western nation. When people are well they can properly participate in a society as contributors, workers, etc. When they are ill they cannot and they will be a drain on our resources one way or the other. Should we let people die because they have no money to afford health care? On the other hand, why shloud any corporation make big money on another person’s misfortune (ill health)? The health of no person shloud be dependent on his/her monetary resources. We shloud, however, be required to make payments for health insurance according to our income or ability to pay. It can only be completely free to those who have no resources.References :
