Rates, premiums, co-pays, deductibles...Where to start? The health insurance world can be big, complicated, and confusing. But HealthMarkets Insurance Agency can help you narrow the field and simplify your decisions. If you’re in the market for health insurance, you’ll need to consider several different questions to help you find the right plan with the right rates for you and your family.
Contrast and Compare: Health Insurance
Let’s look at a few examples: What might your situation look like?
Gina is a single, working mother of two. Her company is very small and does not offer its employees health insurance. She’s in good health and so are her children. She has savings in the bank, but she’s on a limited month-to-month income.
When Gina calls HealthMarkets, one of our thousands of licensed agents will walk her through rate comparisons between plans that could be right for her family. An agent may help Gina decide that, because she is healthy and has savings in the bank, she is willing to risk a higher deductible for the benefit of paying lower monthly rates on her premiums.
Tom is a 58-year old retired employee from a large company. He retired early, three years ago, because he has rheumatoid arthritis. His children are grown, with families of their own, and his partner is his dependent. Tom has kept his former job-based insurance policy through COBRA, but his eligibility is about to end. He needs new insurance.
According to the Affordable Care Act, also known as Obamacare, insurance companies cannot deny Tom an insurance plan because of his pre-existing medical condition. Tom might be interested in finding a health insurance plan with prescription drug coverage that provides him with access to his medications for a reasonable amount of money; he doesn’t want his partner worrying about finances just because of his medical condition. A HealthMarkets agent can find, explain, and compare health insurance rates with Tom and try to find a plan that will take care of his needs.
HealthMarkets can give you options.
Real customers, just like the Gina and Tom examples, have discovered that HealthMarkets can really help them. When Tricia from Tulelake, CA, requested a health insurance quote, she received a phone call soon after. She says, “The agent answered all my questions and found the best plan for me. He was never in a rush and made sure all of my questions were answered.”
