  • Review Your Coverage Annually

    Life changes quickly, and so do your health insurance needs. Make it a practice to review your policy each year. This is especially important if you’ve experienced significant life events such as marriage, childbirth, or retirement. Check if your plan’s benefits still align with your current health needs and lifestyle. It's also an opportunity to see if you can reduce costs or if you need to increase coverage due to new family members or diagnoses.

  • Understand What Your Plan Covers—and What It Doesn’t

    Knowing exactly what your health insurance covers can save you a lot of stress and money when you need to use it. Examine the specifics of what services and treatments are covered, including preventive care, surgeries, hospital stays, prescription drugs, and therapies. Equally important is understanding your plan’s exclusions and limitations. Be clear on your deductibles, out-of-pocket maximums, copayments, and coinsurance. If your current plan doesn’t cover something essential, consider looking into supplemental insurance options.

  • Create an Emergency Health Fund

    Even the most comprehensive insurance won't cover every possible expense, such as non-covered treatments or indirect costs like travel for medical care. To safeguard against high unexpected costs, set up an emergency health fund. Start small, if necessary, and aim to build a reserve that can cover your out-of-pocket maximum or several months of health-related expenses. This fund can be a financial lifeline, reducing the stress of medical emergencies and helping ensure that you can always access necessary care without delay.
