Choosing a good health insurance plan requires careful thought, and consumers need to consider plan categories, services provided, care provider networks and costs involved, including out-of-pocket expenses, according to Healthcare.gov. The health care exchange features five categories of insurance including bronze, silver, gold and platinum. Catastrophic coverage is available for people dealing with serious medical issues. Each level of care comes with a monthly premium, which consumers pay whether services are used or not. Many health insurance plans require consumers to pay for a percentage of medical fees for doctor visits, hospital stays and prescription medications, and this adds to the total cost of coverage.
Consumers need to review multiple health insurance plans and compare services in order to receive the best coverage. Health care services available include emergency, maternity, pediatric, lab tests and preventative care, notes Consumer Reports. Doctors and hospitals are associated with specific networks, and it's important to check care provider lists before committing to a plan.
