Having health insurance is better than coming up empty handed when a medical bill arrives.
“While a large number of the American population is foregoing health insurance coverage, they are doing so because they think it’s too expensive. What many people don’t realize is that they ‘can’ find a reasonably priced policy, just by taking the time to find what they need. Fear of the unknown, as in there isn’t anything with a good price for me, is keeping them from being protected,” said Clelland Green, RHU, CEO, and president of Benepath, Pennsylvania.
Busting the myth that there is no such thing as a reasonably priced health insurance quote or policy is simple. Get online and start hunting. Medical quotes, otherwise referred to as health insurance quotes online have an advantage or two not found by purchasing in person — — lower online prices. This is due to the fact the insurance agent or broker did not have to advertise to the same extent online as offline. The savings in promotional dollars are passed on to the customers.
“Additionally, today’s insurance market is very price competitive, so now is the time to look for something you want and can afford. Get it in place before 2014, and you won’t be mandated to get what’s going, whether you like it or not. This isn’t to say that government offered insurance might not be acceptable, but most people would rather have a choice in what they buy, not something they are forced into getting,” added Green.
Keep one thing in mind when searching online for health insurance quotes, and that is that they are intended to be free. If there is a requirement to pay a fee for that service, move on to another insurance website. “There are two sides to that scenario,” Green pointed out. “Paying for an insurance quote means a more specific quotation, tailored to your circumstances, which some people appreciate. Free quotes may not be as specific and therefore not as accurate price wise. It’s your choice as to which method works the best.”
