Your Health Insurance
In order to protect you and your family, finding an affordable and quality insurance policy to safeguard against health-related problems is invaluable. The past in which so many people fell into debt due to unaffordable medical expenses need not be repeated. It is essential for all to investigate all the options for health insurance and to explore the many potential benefits this kind of coverage can provide.
When it comes to health no one should roll the proverbial dice. Even those who feel themselves to be the picture of health may find themselves challenged by an accident or injury at some point. Without a good policy in place, these medical costs can add up quickly and become very expensive, potentially resulting in debt that can last for years. Debt from health care and the out-of-pocket costs to pay it all back is one of the leading causes of bankruptcy. If you aren’t yet covered, now is the time to consider options, especially in light of recent legal reforms.
The biggest benefit of health insurance is its coverage of some or all of the expenses that result from medical emergencies, checkups, or ongoing health concerns that must be dealt with. The level of coverage that a policyholder can receive is dependent upon the kind of insurance policy they select. The two most common kinds of coverage include the HMO and the PPO. Those seeking coverage can either pay premiums directly to the insurance carrier or through their employer.
HMOs (health maintenance organizations) provide a primary care physician that handles all the insured’s medical needs with the exception of emergencies. They keep services for patients in-network and this is designed to keep costs lower. PPOs (participating provider options), allow the patient the freedom to find medical assistance in or out of their network without any referrals necessary from a primary care doctor. While PPOs tend to be more costly, there is more freedom of choice.
Whatever the kind of coverage a person chooses, it is important to no longer delay getting the coverage you deserve. Without insurance in place, even something minor could end up being prohibitively expensive when the medical bills all come due. Make sure you are properly covered by calling us today.
