How Do I Pick A Health Insurance Plan? by Barbara Kempen | Nov 15, 2015 | Affordable Health Insurance, Health Insurance Brentwood, Health Insurance Pacific Palisades, Health Insurance Santa Monica, Uncategorized Picking a health insurance plan can be a tough choice. Start by writing down the main features of the plans you are considering, and compare them with each other. Be sure to write down any questions you have regarding the plans, and look information up along the way. Gather together important details, such as whether your hospital or doctor are included in the plan. After receiving your answers, you’ll have to start setting priorities. Does one plan offer better rates for your hospital, but doesn’t include your primary physician? Which is more important to you? Also keep in mind that if you are a relatively healthy person, it might be smartest to pick the lowest costing plan, one that would cover you if an emergency or situation ever did arise. If you have a chronic condition, rates that cover specialists will become an important factor.
