When it comes to your physical wellness, you want to take every precaution possible. Life has a way of throwing unexpected curveballs, so securing the right individual and family health insurance is crucial.
Trying to sort out all of the options on your own is overwhelming. Reach out to the independent agents at Lake Region to take away the confusion. Our team will walk through all of your choices and help you settle on the best fit for you and your family.
For several generations, most Americans had medical insurance through their employers. This system was the norm for a long time. Now, however, people are recognizing the value of owning an individual or family health insurance plan for themselves.
There are several situations when having a policy of your own is the most helpful:
If your medical insurance is tied to your employment, you could be at risk of losing it. A sudden round of layoffs or the closing of a business can leave you with no affordable health care. Owning an individual policy gives you peace of mind because a job loss will not automatically result in the cancellation of your insurance.
You also will have the freedom to move from job to job as opportunities arise. You don’t have to stop yourself from seeking new employment options simply because you’re afraid of messing up your medical coverage.
If you are an entrepreneur, you cannot rely on an employer for your family’s health coverage. Individual and family health insurance that you own gives you the protection you need.
And in some instances, self-employed people can get a tax write-off for the premiums they pay on an individual or family plan. Be sure to check in with a tax professional to see if this applies to you.
Employer-based health plans typically have limited options. At most, you probably will have three choices from a workplace insurance plan. There also are likely to be limitations on which doctors you can see.
But when you buy an individual policy, you can shop the entire marketplace for the right fit. You can find a plan that lets you see your preferred doctors and providers. Be sure to work with one of our independent brokers to help with this process.
The health of your family is the number one priority. Ensuring that you have a secure, reliable health care plan in place offers you long-term peace of mind and security.
