There is a direct correlation between how high your deductible is and your premium. You will pay a lower monthly payment if the insurance company accepts less financial liability for your health expenses, and vice versa. When you’re healthy, young, and cash is tight, think about paying a lower monthly payment in exchange for a higher deductible.
When deciding what type of health insurance plan to purchase, consider your medical history and lifestyle. If you have no severe health problems that you know about and live a healthy lifestyle, you may not want to spend more than $60 a month. But if this is not the case, you may want to shell out more each month for a plan with a lower deductible.
When health insurance companies decide how risky it is to cover you, they look at various factors, such as your age, medical history, current health, gender, and the state you reside in. If you choose to purchase a health insurance plan after you’ve already gotten sick, many companies will likely declare it as a pre-existing condition and won’t offer you coverage to pay for medical expenses related to the condition. However, if you purchase your health insurance prior to getting sick, there are legal restrictions that prevent companies from canceling your coverage abruptly.
There are other things to consider when shopping around for a health insurance plan, such as how much you pay for prescription medications, the odds of developing a serious medical condition, how frequently you expect to visit the doctor, and whether you want long-term or short-term coverage. For instance, if you’re a woman and plan on getting pregnant soon, you would benefit more from a health insurance policy that covers maternity expenses.
