If you’re in the market for health insurance, make sure you go with a company you can trust.

After all, there’s nothing more important than your health – and care can get pretty expensive if things take a turn for the worse.

That being said, you should look for a company that’s been around a while, with a proven ability to pay insurance claims (financially stable) and good customer service ratings.

Remember, it’s a lot more likely an insurer will pay your claim if they’re still in business…

Taking the above information into account; here are the “top 10 health insurance companies in the United States,” based on insurance premiums written in 2009, per III.
