I don’t know about you but when I had to start looking for individual healthcare plans for my family, I was lost. I consider myself an intelligent individual but every time I would start researching about health care in general, my eyes would glaze over. There was so much information, in what I swore to be a foreign language, especially the terminology when it comes to health care costs. In the past our health care plans were through my employer, but now that I am a business owner myself, it was up to me to learn as much as I could on what plans were the best fit for myself and my family as well as the costs associated.
The scary part is when you actually need to use the health insurance and you’re unsure as to how much everything is going to cost. When I injured my back, I was extremely concerned for two reasons – was my back ever going to stop hurting so terribly, and what were the costs that I was going to incur by going to the primary care physician, specialist, getting an MRI, getting an x-ray, medication, physical therapy, etc. Unfortunately it is really hard to “plan ahead” when it comes to medical bills.
It’s extremely important to know what your plan covers, if the doctor or facility you are planning to go to is on your plan as well as an estimate of any out-of-pocket costs. Tools like the engagements provided by UnitedHealthcare are super helpful in educating yourself, especially the cost quiz in my case!
UnitedHealthcare has actually made the process a whole lot easier than when I was initially looking. By launching a new section of their website, their goal is to help us better understand about health care – what we are purchasing, terminology (my favorite), where the best places are to go for the right care, future planning, and how to best use the plan that you have. What’s even better is that the three different engagements on their new webpage are fun, as well as educational AND each engagement has its own sweepstakes! There will be one $100 weekly winner and one $500 monthly winner – for each of the three engagements! So basically, you are learning about health care plans and costs AND have the opportunity to enter to win money….no brainer here, people! *The sweepstakes runs from March 1 – March 31, 2017 so don’t miss out!
