Your Options in the Health Insurance Marketplace in Arkansas
HealthMarkets can help you identify which policies are ideal for you. In general, you should think about the following when you are shopping for coverage.
- Determine the essentials. If you want to add a new member to your family, maternity coverage is essential. If you need monthly doctor visits to manage a chronic condition, a policy with a low copayment may be best for you.
- Check to make sure your doctors are in the network. If the plan you're purchasing requires you to choose network providers, make sure your preferred doctors are in that network before you enroll.
- Pay attention to deductibles. Finding an inexpensive policy means nothing if you can’t afford the deductible. (That’s the amount you pay before your insurance will kick in). For example, if a deductible is $1,000, this is the amount you will have to pay in healthcare costs before your insurance will pay.
