You need to understand that health insurance costs play a role in the coverage you receive when choosing health insurance for you and your family.
ACA Marketplace Plans That Fit Your Budget
A Health Insurance Marketplace plan provides coverage for those without health insurance under the Affordable Care Act (ACA). A comprehensive health plan covers doctors’ services, hospital care, prescription drugs, and mental health services.
Marketplace insurance plans are divided into four metal categories: Bronze, Silver, Gold, and Platinum. There is a difference between the plans as to how the overall cost is shared between you and your insurance provider.
What can I do to lower my health insurance costs?
The cost of health insurance is an important part of your annual living expenses, but there are ways to reduce it.
When you purchase health insurance through the Marketplace, you may be eligible for financial aid to lower your premiums. Subsidies for health insurance are based on your earnings and family size (including you, your spouse, if married, and anyone you claim as a tax dependent – even if they do not need coverage). A state’s health insurance costs are also taken into account when determining subsidies. If you qualify, you may be able to lower or completely eliminate your premium.
HMOs Save You Money
You can save money by choosing an insurance plan through a health maintenance organization (HMO). To see a specialist, you will need a referral from your primary care physician, and out-of-network coverage is limited to emergencies. The overall cost of your health insurance will be lower.
Make Sure Your Plan Has A High Deductible
You can save on your monthly payments if you’re healthy overall and don’t need regular doctor visits except for preventive care. A higher deductible will lead to a lower monthly premium for health insurance.
Make Sure Your Health Savings Account Is Compatible With Your Plan
An HSA is an account you use to pay for medical expenses. By putting money into a health savings account and then using that money for your deductible, copays, and coinsurance, you save on taxes. The premiums of health savings account plans are lower because their deductibles are higher.
