How to Select a Plan
If you have a choice of plans through your employer or you are purchasing your own coverage, it’s important to understand your choices and pick the plan that is right for you and your family. There are several questions to ask when reviewing health insurance plan options:
- How affordable is the cost of care?
- How much are monthly health insurance premiums?
- How much are the deductibles?
- Are the co-payments or co-insurance flat fees or percentages of service fees?
- What out-of-pocket expenses have to be paid before the plan begins reimbursement?
- How does the reimbursement process work?
- What is the cost of out-of-network care?
Does the plan cover the services that I may use? For example:
- Doctors, hospitals, laboratories and other health insurance network professionals
- Out-of-network care
- Treatments for pre-existing medical conditions or chronic conditions
- Prescription drugs
What is the quality of the health insurance plan? Research factors of the plan such as:
- Ratings of the plan by independent government and non-government organizations
- Accreditation from groups like the National Committee for Quality Assurance (NCQA) or the Joint Commission on Accreditation of Healthcare Organizations (JCAHO)
- Patient complaints
- Member drop-out rates for the plan
- Other patient experiences with the plan
- Doctor experiences with the plan
