Individual Health Insurance Plans: Shop Wisely!

The rising premiums on health insurance plans are making them almost unattainable for the average person. Even if the company you work for helps out with the costs of the health insurance premiums every month, you still might not be able to afford it. It is bad enough for people that work for large companies to pay their premium every month, but for individuals that work for themselves, health insurance is even more costly.

Just to put this into perspective, the average person that works for a large company will pay from $150 to $250 a month for health insurance. This amount is usually only about half, or less of what the entire premium would cost without the help of the company. An individual on their own has to pay anywhere from $300 to $500 a month, just for coverage on themselves. An individual needs to be very frugal when deciding on the health insurance plan that is right for them. Each health insurance plan offers different options for coverage, so you will need to pick and choose the options that fit you the best.

Most health insurance plans require you to pay a deductible before the insurance company will cover any medical bills. The higher the deductible you have to pay the lower the premiums you will pay every month. If you do not need to use your health insurance very often, then this is the plan for you. Insurance plans also usually allow you to pay a co-payment for a doctor’s visit. The co-payment will usually range from $10 to $50. The higher the co-payment the lower your monthly premium will be. Another thing that will affect your monthly premium is the percentage of coverage for certain procedures your plan will cover. Some plans offer full coverage to no coverage of certain surgical procedures, or hospital stays. The lower the coverage, the lower your monthly premium will be.

All of these options will help to tailor your plan to fit your needs. They will also help you to make your plan more affordable. You will have to weigh your options carefully to maximize the amount of options you get for the premium that you will have to pay.
