You have choices when selecting a health plan during open enrollment. That’s a good thing, but it does mean you need to take action to find the right options for you and your family.
Try these 3 strategies to make sure you get the right coverage for you:
- Call your favorite family doctors. Do they work with the plan you are considering? If not, are you willing to choose a new doctor?
- Compare the different types of plans. One way to help you compare them is to look for a summary of benefits, which highlight plan differences.
- Consider prescription coverage. Are your regular medications covered? Can you save on generic versions or by receiving prescriptions by mail?
Tip: Sleep on it. If possible, allow yourself at least one night to mull over your choices. That way, you’ll be more confident you made the right call.
