So, What Are the Best Health Insurance Plans?

Health insurance might seem like a luxury, given today’s high premiums. Insurance rates are rising to record highs, with no signs of decreasing. In 2005, the rate of increase was nearly seven percent – twice the rate of inflation. More than forty million people in the United States go about their daily life without health insurance, a risky proposition indeed. Health insurance is a necessity to keep medical bills from mounting up and taking over your life. Many people without insurance don’t seek the medical care they need, because they’re afraid of the bills they might incur. An emergency room visit can cost thousands of dollars. An extended hospital stay is even more. With these kinds of expenses, it’s incredibly important to maintain health insurance coverage. But what are the best health insurance plans?

The answer to that question will vary with your needs. Obviously, the least expensive health insurance that gives you good coverage is best, but each individual will have a different budget and different things that they need covered. Healthy people will, for instance, often need less coverage than people with pre-existing conditions. In general, the most dependable health insurance is that which comes through your employer. It’s usually inexpensive and purchased from a known and reliable company. The trouble comes when you can’t get insurance through your job. Maybe your employer has decided to reduce costs in a competitive economy by dropping insurance coverage. Maybe you’re self-employed, only work part time, or have retired before the age of 65, when state benefits begin to apply. If you can’t get insurance through an employer, you can look in some other places to try to find the best plan.

Online research is the quickest way to get a lot of information about the insurance plans available to you. People with low incomes may be able to get benefits through their state insurance board or public health system. Other people will find that the web pages maintained by insurance companies and by groups that gather insurance information will be able to get them fast, easy facts about plans and services. By entering a little personal information, you can get a personalized quote sent to you through the web page or via email. This way, you can get the information you need to compare a lot of plans and providers to find out just what the best kind of health insurance is for you. Be sure to check up on the backgrounds and consumer opinions of the companies that you’re considering. Cheapest isn’t always best, especially with insurance, where you want to know that your company is financially stable and able to take care of you when you submit a claim. Also, ask your state insurance board what the laws are about insurance in your state, to find out what your company can and can’t do. A little bit of careful research can help you find out just what kind of health insurance will best suit your needs and budget.
