Health Insurance

You provide care for others… Let Favorite provide care for you. We are pleased to offer most contract and travel healthcare professionals medical insurance plans through BlueCross/BlueShield.

Nursing and allied healthcare professionals working per diem or non-contract/travel assignments may want to reference for insurance options tailored to match their needs and cost preferences. By answering a few simple questions, individuals can review available plans with Blue Cross/Blue Shield, Humana, and United Healthcare, in addition to many other well-known insurance providers. Temporary healthcare professionals residing in Kansas and Missouri should visit for health insurance options available in those states.

When reviewing healthcare insurance plans, take care to clearly note the deductibles and terms of each policy. As a rule, lower premiums carry higher deductibles. Good health insurance is still available for a reasonable monthly cost. However, only careful review before selection and purchase ensures appropriate coverage and cost.
