Essential Health Insurance Tips To Save You Time And Money

Standard

Health insurance can serve as a short term and long term investment. Be sure you ask pertinent questions and do research before purchasing health insurance. Continue reading to find some tips which will help you to save money, choose comprehensive coverage, and come out a winner in the end.

When you choose health insurance, know what your policy covers. Having good health insurance that makes up for the coverge gaps in other types of insurance can make a huge difference in how you get through any down time without negatively affecting your finances.



To save cash on health insurance, ask if you company has wellness programs for their employees. Lots of employers provide incentives to their employees for getting their health analyzed. You could then register for exercise programs in order to assist your company in saving money on insurance coverage, which can decrease your premiums.

You can lower your premiums by choosing a catastrophic coverage option instead of a comprehensive one. Prescriptions and doctor’s visits are covered by a comprehensive plan, while hospital and emergency care is covered by catastrophic health insurance.

Each state regulates private insurance on their own, which means you are not allowed to purchase from another state. This would violate interstate commerce laws. One consequence of this is that coverage may be reduced or nonexistent if you receive care outside your home state. Just be sure to figure out what your insurance has to offer when it comes to coverage so you know what to expect.

Read your policy to ensure you know exactly which prescriptions are covered and which are not. This list can change each year, so a prescription that is covered one year may not be the next. Be sure to check the list every time you re-enroll.

When you are looking to change health insurance plans be sure to verify that your current doctors will be covered, unless you do not mind having to change doctors. Simply check the insurance company website for a list of hospitals and doctors that are in the network of the insurance provider.

Make sure that your insurance plan covers all aspects of pregnancy and childbirth before getting pregnant. The reason you must be careful of this is that many insurance plans do not pay for everything involved with giving birth.

You can be charged an additional fee if any of the people covered under your health insurance policy is entitled to insurance through their employer. You may be able to save a little money if you each get health insurance through your own jobs, so be sure you figure out the cost for both scenarios.

Since it’s cheaper to do a group plan, your employer rate will be cheaper than a personal insurance plan. In order to take advantage of that fact, try to align yourself with a trade or affinity group that provides membership discounts.

As the guide above mentioned, see to it that you are asking the right questions when it comes to the health insurance coverage that you are considering. Doing the right research can help you choose the coverage and company you need. The advice you take from this article will assist you in making correct choices.

Obama To Speak On 5th Anniversary Of Financial Crisis

Standard

“It’s time to get serious about the challenges we face and re-position America for growth and prosperity in the 21st Century,” he said. With the fiscal year set to end Sept. 30, the two sides have not agreed on a new spending plan; some Republicans are also objecting to an increase in the debt ceiling, and seeking to de-fund Obama’s new health care law. In its announcement of Monday’s speech, the White House said Obama will “discuss the progress we have made to grow the economy and create 7.5 million private sector jobs, and highlight the work we still need to do to strengthen the middle class and those fighting to get into it.” Obama will speak from the Rose Garden at the White House. In an interview with ABC’s This Week, Obama said his health care, housing, and tax policies are helping members of the middle class who have seen incomes stagnate and fall in recent decades, not just during the past five years of the financial crisis. Obama told ABC’s George Stephanopoulos: “Everything that I’ve done has been designed to, number one, stabilize the economy — get it growing again, start producing jobs again — (and) number two, trying to push against these trends that had been happening for decades now.” Arguing that the economy is recovering five years after being “on the verge of a great depression,” Obama also knocked Republican budget-cutting plans. “There’s no serious economist out there that would suggest that, if you took the Republican agenda of slashing education further, slashing Medicare further, slashing research and development further, slashing investments in infrastructure further, that that would reverse some of these trends of inequality,” Obama said.

Obama: Facts Support Immigration Reform

Standard

President Obama said Friday Republicans in the U.S. House, where immigration reform is stalled, should look at the facts. “We’ve got an economic report that shows our economy would be $1 trillion stronger if we get immigration reform done,” Obama said. Republicans, who control the House, have balked at a Senate bill that would create a path to citizenship for 11 million illegal aliens. Obama also said he has reports showing immigration reform would help the housing market and help maintain the U.S. technological and research edge. “We know that the Senate bill strengthens border security.

Obama’s Health Care News Conference

The plan Obama campaigned on last year would have covered fewer than the House bill, according to analyses from two groups. The Lewin Group and the Tax Policy Center estimated last year that Obama’s plan would leave 26.9 million and 25.2 million uninsured, respectively, in 2018. Uncompensated Care Obama repeated a claim about uncompensated care that we’ve already said was unjustified: We wrote about this back in June, when Obama said that “the average family pays a thousand dollars in extra premiums to pay for people going to the emergency room who don’t have health insurance.” This came from a report by the health care advocacy group Families USA, which estimated that people with private family insurance paid an extra $1,017 in premiums to cover the cost of uncompensated care to the uninsured; individuals paid $368 extra. But the nonpartisan Kaiser Family Foundation took issue with that estimate, saying that they were “highly skeptical” that the rising cost of insurance premiums had much to do with cost-shifting, because much of the uncompensated costs would not be passed on to premium payers. KFF’s estimate of actual cost shifting amounted to more like $200 per family annually. In his press conference, Obama added even more to families’ premiums, saying they paid “thousands” more to cover uncompensated care. That’s not what the Families USA study found, and even that group’s $1,000 estimate has been disputed.

Myths and facts about ‘Obamacare’

In many ways, the health care law resembles the Massachusetts reform enacted in 2006 under then Gov. Mitt Romney (a potential Republican rival of Obama in 2012). It builds on the existing private insurance system but adds requirements and incentives to ensure that most people have some form of health insurance. Under the new law, there is no government alternative to the private system–this was a potential provision that was dropped during the congressional tussle–but the number of people who qualify for the existing federal-state Medicaid program for the poor will be expanded. States (or the federal government) will run “exchanges” — essentially marketplaces — in which private insurers will sell insurance to individuals and small businesses, but this should mean more people will get private insurance, not fewer. Tax credits will also be offered to people who have trouble buying private insurance. Certainly, the law bolsters government regulation of the health care system, such as forcing insurance companies to no longer deny coverage to people who have existing medical conditions.
