Prepare to choose
- Make a list of questions before it’s time to choose coverage. For example, “Can I stay with my current doctor?” And “Will this plan cover my health costs when I’m traveling?”
- Understand how insurance works, including things like premiums, deductibles, out of-pocket maximums, co-payments and coinsurance. Knowing about these will make choosing a plan easier.
- Gather information about your household income. To find out whether you are eligible for discounts, you’ll need information found on your W-2, pay stub or tax return.
