Tips for Buying California Health Insurance

Aug 4, 2008
When you buy California health insurance for your family or business, there are several things you ought to keep in mind. For example, as you start your search for insurance, you need to remember that the agency you use is just as important as the provider you choose.

Even though the agency isn't the company covering the expensive medical bills when you run into emergencies, they are the ones who try to match up your needs with the health plan that covers them. They are also the ones who help sense emerge out of the sea of documents that describe those plans. Consequently, their expertise is a very valuable resource. With the right company, you will be able to find the best plan for your situation with the best available rates.

If you want to make sure that you are more important to the agency than the insurance companies that they work with, find an agency that isn't owned by a large insurance provider. Free of outside ties, that insurance agency will be more objective in meeting your needs.

To meet your needs, that agency has to understand them first though. That's why good customer service is another key requirement. With good customer service, communication flows easily between you and the agency. As a result, it will be easy for them to learn your needs and easy for you to understand the benefits and drawbacks of the plans they present.

Once you've found an agency that you trust, it's time to start sorting through the insurance providers. Anthem Blue Cross, Aetna, Blue Shield, Heath Net, and Kaiser Permanente are just a few of the health insurance providers in California. Ask your agent questions about the facilities those providers cover, the premiums they demand, their track record on paying for service, and how easy it is to switch from one provider to another. These and other questions can help you determine which provider is most affordable, accessible and reliable.

In addition to the health insurance you buy, some common sense and some effort can really cut down on your physical ailments. In fact, some of the best health insurance you can get costs time and sacrifice rather than money. For example, if you want be healthy and able, no amount of financial health insurance will do as much for your health as a good diet and proper exercise. Avoiding dangerous activities can also lower your health care costs. Taking these steps may require sacrifice and time, but the dividends are well-worth the effort.
