Health Insurance Tips Anyone Can Use [infographic]

  • Get the right type of insurance. Choosing between the different insurance types can be confusing. Our experts are here to help you make the right choice.
  • Know your coverage. Do you know when your coverage will kick in? Do you know what’s covered? Reviewing your plan carefully can help you throughout the year.
  • Pay attention to deductibles. Your deductible is what comes out of your pocket, so make sure you understand the relationship between deductibles and coverage.
  • Seek out discounts. Can you get a discount on certain medications by looking at a 90-day supply rather than a month’s supply? What if you pay ahead? Look out for discounts and programs that can save you money.
  • Work within network when possible. Working with doctors and providers that are in-network will make your process go much smoother.
  • Go over your plan with your insurance agent. Make sure you understand your plan by going over it in detail with your insurance agent.
  • Don’t be afraid to ask questions. If you aren’t sure if a provider is within network or have a question about a procedure, don’t be afraid to ask about your coverage options! It never hurts to ask.
  • Think ahead. Are you planning to have a baby within the next year? A major surgery? These are things that you will want to consider when choosing your insurance plan for the next year.
