The following information, if used will ensure that you buy the right health insurance
policy with the benefits that you want at a price you can afford.
123insurME.com makes choosing the right plan easy with 123insurME.com’s state of
the art health insurance plan finder that allows you to get quotes from major carriers that
serve your local market in Texas & North Carolina. You also have the ability
to compare plan benefits offered by the insurance companies side by side. This will
allow you to see a breakdown of each plan offered, side by side plan benefits, optional
coverage and links to insurers Network of Providers. As long as you are a resident of
Texas and or North Carolina, you can use 123insurME.com’s health insurance plan
finder free of charge, just go to http://www.123insurME.com click on “Get Quote”.
Before you start your search on 123insurME.com’s website, think back to last year, how
many times did you, your spouse or children visit the doctor, urgent care or hospital.
What amount of money did you spend last year on your total health care?
You want to know what benefits and services that are “Must Haves”. If you are wanting
to start a family, then Maternity Benefits would be a Must have. Today a lot of health
insurance plans do not offer maternity coverage, it must be added in as a optional
benefit, and some companies do not offer it period. You should also look at your family
medical history. Does your father or mother have a history of hypertension (high blood
pressure), diabetes, congestive heart failure, etc. 123insurME.com’s health insurance
plan comparison tools will allow you to easily see and compare what each of the plans
basic coverage offers side by side.
When choosing a health insurance policy deductible, folks normally try to take the lower
deductible, this will make your monthly premiums more expensive. When looking at
your plan choices in 123insurME.com’s quoting & comparison software, Look at “Total
Out Of Pocket” or “Maximum Out Of Pocket”. This is the Total Amount that you are
responsible for – for the year, which includes your deductible, co pays & co
insurance.My rule of thumb is to think;
“In the event of a major hospitalization, what’s the most money that you can afford to
pay out of pocket without devastating your finances”? Lets say that you can afford a
total of $6,500.00. Then your health insurance plans “Total or Maximum out of pocket
should be $6500.00 or as close to that amount as possible, and or less.
Make sure you use 123insurME.com’s provided network links to compare the plans
“Network”. If you’ve been using a primary care physician that you are comfortable with
and like and you want to continue seeing that provider, then make sure your doctor is in
the plan network before purchasing a plan. You can follow the plans “Network Links” in
123insurME.com’s side by side comparison tool which will take you to that plans
network page where you can search for your providers to make sure they are in that
plans network. If your provider doesn’t show up by a name, address or speciality search
call the prospective plan and ask if your providers are included in their plans network.
And if you or a family member have been seeing specialist make sure to check them
Use your chosen plans network for everything, by doing so you can be assured you will
be paying the lowest cost. Going outside of your plans network your plan may cover the
charges but, at a much lower rate which means you will be paying more out of pocket.
When you’re comparing plans using 123insurME.com’s plan finder and plan comparison
tools, make sure you check your chosen plans prescription drug plan. You will want to
see the plans out of pocket cost; deductible, co pays, drug tiers.
Today insurance companies in the individual health insurance market provide a wide
variety of optional benefits. Companies may offer what is called Base coverage or plan
minimum coverage, if you want – for example maternity or prescription drug coverage
you will have to add it to their plans base coverage. They do this to allow people to
better design a health insurance plan that is tailored to your individual needs. So, take
