Realizing your insurance policy’s worth and value
Now that you have your mandatory insurance policy under your belt, it’s time to revisit it and review exactly what it is you bought. By taking a look at your monthly premiums, you will be able to budget accordingly. Nationwide statistics show payments of around $250 per person in a family per month. But this is based on many folks choosing the bottom rung insurance coverage, which requires them to pay a great deal more out of pocket. Your insurance policy should have been set up for your needs rather than your budget, so the review now will let you se what it is you actually got.

You can log into the state exchange at Obamacare Ohio to look over at least the basic details of your policy. A more comprehensive policy should have been mailed to you with all of the fine print no one ever reads until they try and file a claim. Looking at either of these, you should be able to identify how much your monthly premiums will now be. Your should also see what your deductible will be. High deductibles, as are common in low cost insurance policies, means that you will have to pay a considerable amount of the insurance bill versus what the insurance company will pay. Most cheaply-considered policies have a 90-95% cost to the customer, meaning they will have to first pay the vast majority of the bill before the insurance company kicks in their paltry bit.
Make sure your policy has at least basic medical, where you can use it for annual visits to your primary care provider. You should also have access to a prescription plan where the insurance company pays at least something. You might also wish to look for a vision plan if you have a requirement for corrective lenses, but this isn’t as critical as the others. A dental plan will help as well, as keeping teeth healthy affects the entire body.
