Health Insurance

Health insurance is a type of insurance coverage that typically pays for medical, surgical and prescription drug expenses incurred by the insured. Health insurance can reimburse the insured for expenses incurred from illness or injury or pay the care provider directly.

Health Insurance

Health insurance can reimburse the insured for expenses incurred from illness or injury or pay the care provider directly. Health insurance can be tricky to navigate. Managed care insurance plans require policyholders to receive care from a network of designated healthcare providers for the highest level of coverage. If patients seek care outside the network, they must pay a higher percentage of the cost. In some cases, the insurance company may even refuse payment outright for services obtained out of network.

Many managed care plans for example,health maintenance organizations, HMOs, and point-of-service plans, POS,  require patients to choose a primary care physician who oversees the patient’s care, makes recommendations about treatment, and provides referrals for medical specialists. Preferred-provider organizations, PPOs, by contrast, do not require referrals, but do have lower rates for using in-network practitioners and services. Insurance companies may also deny coverage for certain services that were obtained without preauthorization. In addition, insurers may refuse payment for name-brand drugs if a generic version or comparable medication is available at a lower cost.
Increasingly, health insurance plans also have co-pays, which are set fees that plan subscribers must pay for services such as doctor visits and prescription drugs; deductibles that must be met before health insurance will cover or pay for a claim; and coinsurance, a percentage of healthcare costs that the insured must pay even after they’ve met their deductible, and before they reach their out-of-pocket maximum for a given period. Insurance plans with higher out-of-pocket costs generally have smaller monthly premiums than plans with low deductibles. When shopping for plans, individuals must weigh the benefits of lower monthly costs against the potential risk of large out-of-pocket expenses in the case of a major illness or accident.
