Questions to ask before choosing health insurance coverage
Is my doctor in the network?
Before deciding on a health insurance policy, it is vital that if you have a preferred doctor or other healthcare professionals, you make sure that they are in the network you are considering. Not every doctor is in every network, and it is up to you to make sure that the doctors you want are covered by your plan.
What is the plan deductible?
Before your health insurance starts to pay for services, the deductible must be met. If it is too high, it can mean that you will have no services that are covered. It is a fine balance between a policy that you can afford and one that provides you with the coverage you need.
What type of managed care is it?
There are three main types of managed care; an HMO. PPO, and POS. All of them have good points and not-so-good points. An HMO is the most restrictive, providing little or no coverage outside your network, but is the least expensive. A PPO will give you a better rate if you stay within your network and a POS lets you decide if you want to have service in or out of the network. If you need flexibility, it is the best choice.
