CoventryOne Highlights 5 Do’s and Don’ts for Purchasing Health Insurance Coverage
BETHESDA, MD – May 31, 2012. Buying individual health insurance is an important decision. It involves your health and well-being, so it should not be taken lightly. To find coverage that meets your needs and budget, here are some do’s and don’ts from CoventryOne.
1.Do create a checklist. Different policies offer different features and benefits—like routine wellness exams, hospital care, urgent and emergency care, prescription drugs and more. Evaluate the coverage for these important services before picking a plan.
2.Do compare several quotes on health insurance. This is the best way to learn what to expect ahead of time. Many insurance companies offer easy-to-use quoting tools to view rates, see benefits and research plans.
3.Do search for plans with a network of providers that works for you. Have a preferred doctor or hospital? Check to make sure that they are included in the health insurance coverage. Those who value flexibility may save money with a larger network of participating providers.
4.Don’t buy coverage without knowing your options. If you’re not comfortable doing your own research, a licensed insurance agent can help you fully understand your options.
5.Don’t wait until the last minute to buy a health insurance policy. While your application will usually be reviewed within a few short days, approval could take up to a couple months based on the insurer.
