What kind of health insurance will I need?

Health insurance comes in all shapes in sized and if one is not careful they may find themselves with a policy that is inadequate. Knowing basic terminology is important such as “major-medical” because this separates itself from other companies that offer health insurance.

Now, is there anything wrong with other carriers that offer non-major medical coverage? No. It depends on the need. Dental, vision, indemnity, and temporary insurance fall under the category of health insurance but none of them are major-medical.

How do I go about getting a major-medical plan?

First, there is a window of time that anyone can buy a policy which is called the Open-Enrollment Period (OEP). At this time, individuals may apply for a tax-credit and shop on/off the marketplace exchange. Once that period is over, there must be a qualifying life event (QLE) for a Special Enrollment Period (SEP). A QLE would be a job loss, move, marriage, divorce, pregnancy, or involuntary loss of coverage. This is your “golden-ticket” to find another plan.

Keep up with change

Periodic reviews are necessary. Whether you are an employer or an employee, it is good to understand options for major-medical insurance.

Even though many believe cheaper is better, there have been instances where cheaper was costly because the policy did not cover a claim. Having a working knowledge leads to an informed decision instead of a costly one. We are here to guide and explain what does and does not work for you.
