Health Insurance Policy Choices

This is a big question. If you are shopping for health insurance on your own you will have a wide range of factors to consider. Even if your employer provides you with health insurance, you may have multiple plans to choose from. How do you decide what's right for you?

The most important thing, before deciding on health insurance, is to ask yourself the right questions:

Can I afford health insurance?
The bottom line is the amount of the premium. If the premium is more than you can afford, but you are still interested, perhaps you can tailor the plan to fit you.

These are also important considerations, especially if you or your family members are frequent users of health care services.

Does this medial insurance plan cover the services I (or my family) use?
If you have seen a Chiropractor for years you will likely want this to be a covered therapy. Not all health insurance plans cover alternative health practitioners - check the fine print.

Not all health insurance plans cover preventative medicine. If you'd rather take action before you get sick check your coverage.

Also, be sure that the medial insurance will cover you for your pre-existing health conditions. If it doesn't, or it has a waiting period, be sure you understand how that will impact you and your family.

Health insurance plans may also restrict your ability to change doctors, see doctors outside of the plan or get access to specialists. Read the fine print.

If you are interested in starting a family it's critical to understand whether the health insurance covers the costs of prenatal care and delivering the c...
