With the holiday season in full swing, it’s easy to get wrapped up in the joys of the season like shopping, decorating and baking. But the season also means an end to one year and a fresh start on a brand new year. We all tend to want the New Year to be better than the last, full of health and prosper. To help achieve that, health insurance should be of utmost importance and I’m sharing how you can get expert healthcare advice to help aide in your decision for selecting an insurance provider.
You never know when an injury or illness will strike and it’s always better to be prepared for anything, rather than have to worry about how you’re going to pay for it when something does go wrong. Health related costs could be catastrophic for the uninsured. Without surgery, a broken leg can cost around $7,500 for an uninsured person and it costs about $30,000 for an average 3-day stay at the hospital. You’re looking at hundreds of thousands of dollars for comprehensive cancer care and we’re just getting started with the long list of things that could happen.
I know that navigating healthcare insurance options can be intimidating, and that’s why it’s important to use resources that are available to help better understand your options, such as health insurers like Anthem. Right on Anthem’s website, you can shop for individual plans, family plans and more. There are Application Assistors, Navigators and brokers within your local communities that can help answer questions and help you find the plan that fits your family during open enrollment.
With the open enrollment period currently upon us, now is the best time to plan for the year ahead and compare your options. You certainly don’t want to wait until it’s too late, so act today. Head to the Healthcare.gov website for more information and to apply.
