It is unreasonable to believe that you donít need health insurance if you are healthy. Some believe that it is expensive. That is not true. In fact you can safeguard your financial health for the future by investing a small amount today. You can do some things to help you find the best cover at the cheapest rates.
- Check whether you are eligible for group cover. This will reduce your premiums substantially. Check with your employer to find out whether they are offering group covers. You may also check with professional groups you might belong to.
- Find out about individual health care plans. They might be more inexpensive than you think.
- Try to combine your health insurance with an HSA account. These will save you dollars. You can use pre tax dollars to pay for health checkups and thus reduce your major insurance.
- Try to increase your deductibles. The more you spend on these, the less you pay as premiums later on.
- If you have a small income, check for state sponsored plans you may be eligible for. Also find out whether you can get Medicaid.
- Finally, collect information. The more informed you are, the better your choice will be. Talk to friends, agents, surf the net or talk to the company directly. Choose a cover that gives you the best coverage at a price you can afford.
