A network refers to the group of physicians, hospitals, and other health care providers that have agreed to provide medical services to a health insurance plan's members at discounted costs. If keeping your current doctors is important make sure they're a part of the network and that it has good coverage with local hospitals and other medical facilities.
2) Excellent Customer Service
It's hard to tell which companies have the best customer service based on a few phone calls and they're always easier to talk to when you're looking to buy than looking to file a claim. Use the J.D. Power rankings for your state to get a more independent impression.
3) Comprehensive Policies
Look for no annual caps or limits and do not choose an indemnity policies or health discount plans unless all other alternatives are exhausted.
4) Competitive Pricing
Nobody wants to pay more than they need to, right? Work with a qualified health insurance agent who has multiple carriers and can provide several competing quotes for you.
5) Claims-Paying Ability
There are many good health insurance companies out there with great people working for them. However that doesn't mean that all carriers have the same claims-paying ability. Talk to your agent to get a clear assessment of each of the carriers financial strength.
