Hi. Before you start clicking on anything in search of the least expensive insurance you can find, you really need to familiarize yourself with a few terms. In doing so, you will be much more prepared for developing a strategy which will save you money and ensure that your risks are minimized to the best of your ability.
Now that you’ve become familiar with the terms, you probably realize that just having an inexpensive insurance plan isn’t necessarily in your best interest. So, for going forward, you really need to determine how much you want to budget for necessary health coverage. As you review the plans offered by the insurance companies you see here, keep in mind that the intent of high deductible health plans is to offer an alternative to traditional plans. This alternative and premium difference made available a cost savings, but left you vulnerable and at risk for the high deductibles and out-of-pocket costs.
The strategy is to take some of those savings and purchase supplemental insurance, which will help pay for the deductibles and out-of-pocket expenses you may incur. Take the remainder and place it in a health savings account. The insurance companies usually have a line of supplemental accident and critical illness coverage, which can be combined with a plan you select. Some of the companies here can even assist you with setting up a Health Savings Account and make deposits a part of your monthly premium payment. The savings will build in the account and be ready for you when needed most. The companies represented here are able to receive payment by automatic bank draft or other method you may choose. All payments will be made directly to the insurance carrier. For reasons I talk about in the life insurance section, I highly recommend the automatic payment set up with the carrier.
If you are between jobs, you might want to consider Short Term Medical insurance. I hope this information has been helpful to you as you select your plan today.
