Personal Service From Health Insurance Agents Priceless

When you get personal service it stands out doesn’t it? You bet it does, and even more so when you get the inside information or “scoop” on what would work the best for you and your family health care needs. Knowing which hospitals honor their claims, and which don’t, which doctors offer what services and which ones don’t, is really valuable information when it comes to buying health insurance. A local insurance agent knows this and more and in telling you these things, you have become a person with a name and a family and not just a number.

Large online health care providers don’t usually offer too much in the way of personal service because many of them aren’t even in your home state. Check it out some day. Many of them are several states away and have no clue about the local networks in your community. So, when you find a health insurance agent that knows their stuff and the local community, stick with them for better service.

So what do you think about being denied health insurance if you have pre-existing conditions?

While it’s true that you may still be denied health insurance if you have pre-existing health insurance, there are other options open to you, including the Pre-Existing Condition Insurance Plan (PCIP). PCIP is really only a temporary program, intended to bridge the gap between now and 2014, when it will become illegal to discriminate against those with pre-existing conditions.

Depending on your point of view, this may appeal to you or not. You could wait until 2014, but do you really want to take the chance? Having some form of health insurance, no matter what it is, is essential to your well-being. With a pre-existing condition that may change over time or worsen, health insurance is even more critical.

Medical Insurance Quotes and Your Online Options

People have been searching for medical insurance online for over 10 years now, and according to research at Forrester, this number is only going to keep growing as a greater percentage of people do their insurance searches on the internet.

When you perform your search online, you are going to be presented with up to hundreds of different health insurance choices. For the average person, its just overwhelming and we recommend that you work with a quality advisor to make the right decision.

If you want to make the decision yourself, here are the basics:

Know your monthly budget: This is going to be the best place to start and it will reduce your choices substantially – unless the sky is the limit… When setting your budget, don’t skimp – you can get inexpensive plans – but you give up a lot in benefits.
Know your healthcare needs: Have an honest conversation with yourself about what you and your families needs are. Is anyone sick and frequently needs to see a doctor? Is everyone healthy and you really only see a doctor once or twice a year? Copays make more sense if you need a lot of care – but if you rarely use the healthcare system an HSA program may be right for you.
Know how much you can afford out of your own pocket: This will establish how much you should choose for your maximum out of pocket expenses.
Most online health insurance quote systems will give you the ability to choose all of the above. After you are done telling the system how much you can spend and what kind of plan you want, your choices should narrow to just a few options. Once you have those options, you can start looking at the finer points like ‘Is my doctor in the network’ etc.

At the end of the day, a good health insurance agent will help you navigate all of the above and will discuss important considerations you probably won’t think of on your own. And this comes at no cost to you as the monthly rate you pay is the same if you have an agent or don’t have an agent.

No pay or co-pay, which suits you?

You have co-pay if you work for a company and only pay a part of the doctor’s office bill when you go. It’s that simple, and yet complicated all at once. Many people adore their co-pay and would be lost without it, and that’s the problem if they quit their jobs or get laid off – no more co-pay. If you want to opt to get co-pay later, that costs big bucks.

Many people don’t realize that co-pay is NOT insurance, it’s a benefit and companies pay out a lot of money to offer co-pay as a perk for their workers. This isn’t to say you can’t get co-pay if you’re on your own, but ask your local insurance agent about that first, as you may have to re-think that strategy and opt for something more affordable.

There are a Wide Variety of Health Insurance Plans on the Market These Days

There is a health insurance plan on the market for everyone today. You just need to look for it.

Living in today’s high technology world is stressful. The economy is bad. People are unemployed in large numbers. The environment is doing odd things. The health care system is overloaded. Add this all together with just trying to live, and you get health problems. If you don’t have a health insurance plan to protect you, even if you are out of a job, you will be saddled with a huge medical bill when you need to see a doctor. That is a fact. It’s time to research health insurance plans.

At one time, the company you worked for or even the government offered health insurance plans. Not so much now, for the simple reason that they have become too expensive for employers. If an employer does keep a health insurance plan as a benefit for employees, the bulk of the costs are passed to the workers. They want to reduce their operating overhead by passing the buck – literally. As unfair as that might be, this still means you are in a situation where you need health insurance, or go bankrupt attempting to pay medical bills incurred for a sudden medical crisis you did not expect.

Put this into perspective. In a nutshell, those without health insurance these days can ill-afford to get sick. The catastrophic consequences of their illness, broken bone, surgery or other care, would put them in a desperate financial bind, with very few ways out, other than declaring personal bankruptcy. This is where choice hits the road. You choose to be well and carry health insurance, even on a strict budget, or you don’t buy health insurance figuring you will save money. You won’t save money, not when your medical bill for a broken wrist comes to well over $20,000.

Know what health conditions you and your family have before searching for a health insurance plan that suits your circumstances. Write everything out if you need to, and cross check your list with the information you find on the Internet. While many insurance websites have a wealth of details online, there is always something you need to know. Call and ask.

Do not assume that the cheapest health insurance plans are the ones that will work for you, just because they are cheap. You may end up with insurance that does not cover your specific conditions, or won’t pay for E.R. care. That means, you pay the bills and pay for a policy that does you no good. That makes no sense at all.

HMO Health Insurance Quotes Can Be Misleading

What does everyone want with a health insurance plan?

  • Low copays
  • Lots of doctors and hospitals in the network
  • Extensive coverage

All at a low price.

On the surface, HMO’s can appear to be all of the above, but if you buy an HMO without looking at the details you could end up for a big surprise.

Many cheap HMO’s advertise the doctor’s office copay – the most widely used benefit in health insurance. But its when you end up in the emergency room or need surgery when you will be truly using your insurance benefits. And here is where you may end up with a problem.

Many HMO’s designed for individuals come with very high deductibles and coinsurance limits for those types of services. So everything is fine so long as all you need are a few prescriptions and to visit your doctor every once in a while, but then you end up owing $5,000 when you end up in the hospital.

So just be careful when you are selecting a plan and make sure you look at how much you might have to pay if you need expensive health care services.
