“One less thing to worry about.”

just right: finding health insurance that fits

If you’re in-between jobs, running your own business, moving off of your parent’s insurance, or you just want to be covered should anything happen, here’s a few tips to help you find the right health insurance plan for you:

Understand your health insurance needs.

Ask yourself questions such as: How often do I go to the doctor? Am I taking any prescription medications that will continue?

Estimate what you’re spending on healthcare today, or what you may expect to spend in the future (Thinking about starting a family any time soon?)

Do some research and shop around.

Talk to a local insurance agent or trusted advisor, or research online to determine what type of coverage is best for you (high or low deductible, office visit costs or copay, coverage of routine care, etc.)

Understand the benefits and know what your out-of-pocket costs will be.

Find out if there are exclusions or waiting periods. Make sure to read and understand the details.

Compare several coverage options and get to know the insurance company.

Is it a reputable, trusted company? You can research many companies via the Nebraska Department of Insurance at www.doi.ne.gov.

Does the company want to help keep you well?

Explore what services your insurance company offers that address wellness and preventive service vs. just covering you when you are sick. This will lower your costs in the long run.
