Selecting Your Best Health Plan on the Health Insurance Marketplace in South Carolina
When choosing a plan from the health insurance marketplace in South Carolina, you should:
- Keep monthly premiums in mind. Being able to afford your health insurance plan is important.
- Look for a plan that offers a network of doctors you want to see.If you have a regular doctor, try to find a plan where he or she is in the network.
- Read the terms of each plan. Deductibles are important, because you'll have to pay the deductible amount before your insurance will cover needed care.
- Contact a licensed agent. A licensed health insurance agent can assist you with your coverage and costs, and help you understand all the aspects of a new plan. We even have access to affordable plans not sold on the exchange.
