The Affordable Care Act (ACA) was signed into law and launched in 2010. The law stipulates the requirements for most individual health insurance plans and group insurance plans. Requirements of these plans include annual no-cost preventative checks. All ACA-complaint plans do not have lifetime limits on overall expenses too. Young adults can also use their parents’ plans as long as they are younger than 26. There are also financial aids that you may qualify for in paying for these plans called subsidies.

This is a type of individual health insurance plans that can be designed to minimize risks and limit expenses. these plans are not suitable for persons with pre-existing conditions. This is because short-term insurance typically does not cover pre-existing conditions. We should also mention that these plans are not the best choice for persons that are not very fit and healthy. They provide limited coverage, especially when compared with ACA-compliant plans. However, they are great for persons that need temporary coverage. If you need temporary individual health insurance plans while working towards a more permanent coverage, we are ready to help you find the most suitable short-term insurance plan.
These plans are not regarded as full healthcare coverage and should not be used as such. Indemnity plans are designed such that the insured is not paid the full cost of the expenses for medical procedures. Instead, a predetermined amount is paid. This is why we mentioned that they are not full health insurance plans. We advise that indemnity plans are used to complement other full coverage. You should also know that indemnity plans tend to have complex paperwork. The terms and conditions attached to these individual health insurance plans are cumbersome. Also, these plans cover very limited preventative services. At our Greenwood Insurance Agency, we apply our expertise to find the most suitable plan for every client.
As the name suggests, these are the extra services that come with health insurance plans. Health insurance can come with value-added benefits such as gym membership and other lifestyle products. Another common value-added benefit is telemedicine. With telemedicine, you can consult with a healthcare provider without being at the same physical location. This is possible through phone calls or video calls. Telemedicine services also come with low co-pay’s or no co-pays. If telemedicine is not a value-added service of your insurance plan, you can get it through organizations that provide the service. Medcard is one of such organizations. Medcard offers telemedicine and a ton of discounted services and products. A whole family can pay between $12 to $15 a month to access Medcard services.
Professionals Network Coverage
When buying insurance plans, you should consider whether they are associated with networks. Networks mean a group of professionals or service providers attached to a plan. Some plans specify that when you engage the services of professionals outside the network, it would cost more. Other plans do not allow the insured to seek the services of service providers and professionals outside the network. This is one important factor to consider when determining the suitability of local Greenwood health insurance plans to your needs.
