Question: How to get the best deal on health insurance?
Answer: Call Comrade Financial Group
In Maryland, District of Columbia and Virginia you and your business have a wealth of options when it comes to on and off exchange plans. When you think about over 2000 options for Small Group Health Insurance and close 100 options for Individual and Family Health Insurance it is sometimes mind boggling to all of the options and choices.
We would like to break things down and make it a little simple. As most consumers only shop based on monthly premium and that is the biggest mistake you can make for you or your business. You do get what you pay for and if you take a little time to go over each plan option and benefit description, it does make sense about what your best choice should be.
The main thing you should think about is benefit level. Do not let the Metal levels fool you when it comes to benefit level. All plans are not created equal as you will find in the differences between HMO, PPO and POS plans. The benefit level describes all of the free benefits that come with a monthly premium and also what percentage of risk you assume as a client of that particular insurance company. Many of our new clients are still stuck on having a Co Insurance and do not fully understand their true liability. Once you have chosen your benefit level, then it is time to take a look very carefully at your liability level.
The liability level is pretty self explanatory when it comes to a deductible, but it is still tricky. Some plans only require a deductible to be met if you are hospitalized while others want the deductible to be applied to all services up to and including prescriptions. When you take time to understand these plans and options that most brokers should point out and often we find others do not, then you are taking unnecessary risk.
When shopping for a plan, do not rely on an insurance professional that does not have all of the answers. It is really not that hard to become fully fluent in all of the insurance jargon and the plans and how they can help each individual client. Quotes are free and our time spent with you is time well spent.
In conclusion, choosing a health insurance policy either on exchange or off exchange we urge you to fully understand all of your options and not just the lowest premium.
