obtaining health insurance quotes

Hello, thankful for this forum!
I am just now attempting to obtain health insurance quotes (individual). I have found myself very confused about all of the different plans.
My question is:
Should I call and inquire to the different insurance companies for their rates and plan information? The common sense answer would be, "of course you should".
But, I have heard that insurance companies contribute information and history on people to a database similar to a credit report.
So, is it true that the last company I call for a quote with will be able to see what other companies I have obtained quotes from.
And furthermore, would that mean that if I decided to change insurance companies in a few years, they will be able to see what claims I might have made and so forth? I would much rather them get information about me through my medical file than some system the insurance companies use to share information.
Thanks for your time and advice!
