What is the best health insurance plan for me?

Choosing between different health insurance plans isn’t always easy.  There is no one “best” plan for everyone.  the est match for your and your family may be different that the best match for someone else.  In order to help you answer this question, here are a few things to consider:

1. Are you going to need long term coverage or just something for short term?
If you are between jobs for 1-6 months,  you may want to look int our short term coverage options.  Alternatively, if you have no prospects of receiving group health insurance coverage through an employer, you may value the stability and increased benefits offered through an individual or family health plan option.
2. Are you looking for basic coverage or more comprehensive coverage?
Some insurance plans offer basic coverage to cover  you in case of a major accident or illness.  These insurance plans typically have a lower month premium than plans with more comprehensive coverage and may be appropriate  for people who intend to use their insurance primarily in the event of a serious illness or accident.
3. Would you rather pay for your services before you use them or when you use them?
Typically, the higher the monthly premium that you pay, the less you will pay per doctor’s visit in co-payments and deductible.s  if you choose a health insurance plan with a low monthly premium, you’re likely to have a higher co-payment or deductible.  If you don’t anticipate making frequent  use of your health insurance coverage, a higher deductible plan with a lower monthly premium may suit you best.
