Common Health Insurance Questions
These days, it is incredibly expensive to go to the doctor. But you shouldn’t have to choose between receiving the care you need or paying an astronomical medical bill. If you have the right health insurance, then you will be able to receive the care you need at a much more affordable price. It’s there to help you not only receive emergency care, but also get routine medical services that keep you healthy.
When you see a doctor, you will present your insurance benefits to them, and they will figure out how much of your care they can bill to the insurer, instead of directly to you. This can reduce your out-of-pocket burden for care and make it much more affordable than it would be if you lacked benefits.
Still, all health insurance plans differ. Both Texas law and federal law, including the Affordable Care Act, set coverage standards, enrollment requirements and cost sharing rules for plans of all shapes and sizes. These might seem hard to sort out, but our expert agents are well-versed in the rules and regulations of coverage. We’ll help you ensure you get the plan that is perfect for you.
You must take care to choose the health plan that is easiest for you to manage and to use for the care you need. You want to make your care as affordable as possible.
Just a few of the plan options available to you include:
- Point-of-Service (POS) Plans
- Fee-for-Service Plans
- Health Savings Accounts (HSAs)
There are also a variety of specialized health and wellness plans on the market, including:
- Dental Coverage
- Vision Coverage
- Long-Term Care Insurance
- Temporary Health Insurance
- Supplemental Insurance
- Disability Insurance
- Child Health Insurance
- Travel Health Insurance
- Prescription Drug Insurance
Additionally, Medicare participants might qualify for a variety of specialized, private plans, such as:
- Medicare Advantage (Part C) Coverage
- Medicare Prescription Drug (Part D) Plans
- Medicare Supplements (Medigap plans)
Through a quality individual health insurance plan, you can receive coverage for multiple critical medical care needs, such as:
- Standard checkups & physician fees
- Inpatient & outpatient surgical procedures
- Hospitalization costs
- Emergency care
- Ambulance services
- Equipment and assistive devices, such as diabetic testing items and wheelchairs
- Diagnostic testing, such as labs or x-rays
- Preventive services like vaccinations, diet counseling or cholesterol monitoring
- Certain nursing home or rehab facility costs
If you buy a supplementary plan alongside your primary plan, then you might be able to receive more coverage for costs that your primary plan doesn’t pay.
Plans like dental, vision, prescription drug and travel coverage will supply more specialized coverage, and in some cases, your individual plan includes these benefits. Still, separate coverage is a critical benefit that you should not go without.
Health insurance requires cost sharing for most services. This means that you must pay for some of your care costs yourself. The terms of your plan will influence how much you usually pay.
- Most health plans have coverage networks, which are the groups of physicians and facilities that will accept your plan as a form of payment. When you use an in-network provider, your plan will pay for your care to its fullest extent. Visiting an out-of-network provider will likely cost you more money and some out-of-network care won’t have coverage at all.
- Certain care, namely preventive care, might come at no cost to the policyholder.
- Many plans include deductibles. A deductible is the cost that you must pay for your own care before your insurer pays for your care. However, many plans waive deductibles for certain care.
- Some types of care will have coinsurance requirements. Under a coinsurance rule, your insurer pays for a percentage of your care cost, and you pay the rest. For example, on an 80/20 coinsurance plan, your insurer pays 80% of a medical bill and you pay 20%.
- Care services might also include copayments. A copayment is a fee that you pay at the time of receiving care or shortly afterwards. For example, your plan might require you to pay a $30 copayment for a regular checkup while a specialist copayment might be $50.
Health insurance costs can vary widely depending on many factors. However, if you qualify for a plan through the Healthcare.gov marketplace, then you might qualify for cost assistance that will lower your premium. Your income and other factors might influence your eligibility for lower premiums.
