Health insurance helps you to manage the costs of your family's care, including regular doctor's visits and unexpected illnesses and injuries.
Just one serious illness, or an emergency procedure can have dire consequences for your financial portfolio if you aren’t insured properly. Health insurance coverage may seem expensive, but if you compare your premiums to the cost of surgery and other medical procedures out of pocket, there’s no question that healthcare insurance premiums are far lower in cost.
Also, having adequate health insurance can help you live a healthier, longer life. These policies cover preventive care, which helps you manage your health proactively, and covered routine testing can help with early detection of common conditions and diseases, such as diabetes, heart conditions, and thyroid problems, which can require much more extensive and costly care if they go untreated.
By contrast, if you are uninsured, you’re less likely to visit the doctor. The cost of a routine examination for the uninsured can be costly and can be a disincentive to take charge of your good health
When you begin to search for health insurance, you can look on the private market or through your state's healthcare exchange. For those who are new to the process, it can be overwhelming. Start by assessing your needs. If you’re prone to illness, play high impact sports, or have a risky profession, it may be better to have a co-pay plan rather than one with a high deductible.
If you have children, the plan that is most beneficial to you may be different from the ideal plan for someone who is single with no kids. If you have a favorite doctor, make sure that doctor is “in-network” if you opt for an HMO. You also need to think about your budget, and whether a plan that involves coinsurance or higher deductibles makes the most sense for you. By assessing your needs and comparing plans, you can find an affordable healthcare plan that meets your needs.
Many people don’t know where to start because the number of plans and variety of coverage options is very confusing. A Coverage One Insurance agent who specializes in health insurance is an excellent resource. These agents can help individuals and families to review a range of plans from different health insurance companies and choose one that will help with preventive care and major medical care at an affordable cost.
Medicare is the federal health insurance program for individuals who meet specific eligibility requirements. You must be age 65 and an American citizen or legal resident for the last five years prior to enrollment. If you are on disability, receiving Social Security or Railroad Retirement Board benefits, or have a qualifying medical condition, you may be eligible for Medicare benefits prior to your 65th birthday.
There are various plans under the Medicare system and most individuals receive free hospital coverage under Part A. For a monthly premium, Part B can provide routine medical care, and additional supplements are available to help offset the cost of prescription drugs, dental, and vision expenses.
Eligible individuals are automatically covered under Part A, and depending on your specific circumstances, you may choose to opt out of Part B if you have health insurance through a spouse or employer. A range of additional Medicare plans are available and should be considered based on a variety of factors including your medical needs and current level of income.
Medicare Part A is typically free of charge for all eligible individuals. All other plans may have monthly premiums associated with them based upon your income and tax status. Keep in mind that Medicare plans do not entail 100% coverage but rather are designed to offset the expenses associated with a visit to a Medicare provider.
Most Medicare plans will include an annual deductible and many require a coinsurance payment. It’s best to become familiar with your specific benefits so that you have an accurate understanding of what your out of pocket expenses may be for various supplies and services.
Your changes do not go into effect immediately, however, but instead begin on January 1 following the Annual Election Period. Individuals who are currently enrolled in Medicare Advantage and want to change to Original Medicare but did not do so during the specified period can make this change during the Medicare Advantage Open Enrollment Period. This provides a 3-month window for beneficiaries in an MA plan to make a change in their enrollment if they are dissatisfied with their choice during the AEP.
