A Guide to Buying Individual Health Insurance
It’s important to know what to look for in individual health insurance before you begin shopping for plans. The Wall Street Journal provides some tips to consider as you learn about your options:
Don’t just look at premiums.
Your health insurance expenses extend further than your monthly premium rate. It’s important to understand your policy’s out-of-pocket maximum to know how much you may be required to spend in copayments or coinsurance for your medical services.
Know your covered benefits.
With the Affordable Care Act (also known as the ACA or Obamacare), all health insurance plans should include coverage for services, such as preventive care services, annual wellness checkups, and ten essential health benefits. It’s important to check what your policy covers and what services you may need to pay for yourself.
Consult a health insurance representative.
Many private health insurance marketplaces have agents or representatives who can offer assistance when shopping for individual health insurance. They can listen to your financial situation and health concerns and offer guidance for federal subsidy eligibility or policy enrollment.
