Family Health Insurance Plans

Exploring health insurance for your family is a big responsibility—as it protects your family, your income, and your savings. The costs of healthcare are high, and without insurance, your family might not be able to access the care they need. Of course, the right health insurance coverage is essential for receiving quality care, but you also don’t want to break the bank, giving you a lot to consider.

Fortunately, researching health insurance plans and knowing what to look for can make the process much easier. At Redirect Health, we offer family health insurance plans that fit your budget and provide you with access to quality care. This guide will cover everything you need to know about choosing family health insurance plans that provide the best value for affordable coverage.

How To Find Health Insurance

Searching for health insurance is a little different from searching for a home or auto insurance, as there are several pathways that you can take to obtain it outside of just shopping for any plan. You can find health insurance through multiple avenues.

Employer Plans

Many people receive health insurance through plans offered by their employer. There are some drawbacks to this method, though. The first drawback is that not everybody has an employer that offers health insurance.

At the same time, employer plans also still require you to pay a monthly premium that comes out of your paycheck. In many cases, people find it cheaper to search for a plan elsewhere than opt-in to their employer’s family health plan.

Government-Sponsored Coverage

In some situations, government-sponsored coverage is an option for families. Medicare is one of the most common government-sponsored insurance options for older adults, but it does not offer insured plans for couples or families.

Many state governments also offer low-cost or free health insurance coverage for families and children through Medicaid or the Children’s Health Insurance Program (CHIP). Although, the qualifications to receive Medicaid are different for every state, and not everyone qualifies.

That said, there are many people who do not qualify for Medicare who are still priced out of other health insurance plans. In these cases, it is helpful to have the option to look elsewhere and find a more affordable option.

Direct Plans

For people who do not have employer health insurance and find that government Marketplace plans are not a good fit for them, there is the option to shop for health insurance directly. Oftentimes, people prefer to search for family health insurance plans on their own to find a plan that is more affordable and provides more value.

For example, Redirect Health offers family health plans at affordable rates to simplify access to healthcare coverage. Many people trust Redirect Health to offer them better value in their coverage compared to plans they find elsewhere.

Factors To Consider When Choosing Family Health Insurance Plans

After deciding that your best option is to shop for health insurance, you can start to weigh which plan works best for your family. Of course, you don’t want to choose just any health insurance, as it could backfire when you need coverage the most. There are seven key factors to consider when comparing family health insurance plans. To find the best affordable coverage for your family’s needs, weigh these factors.

1. Plan and Provider Networks

There is no shortage of options when it comes to searching for health insurance plans. However, that doesn’t mean any doctor will accept any health insurance plan. Every insurance provider has a network of healthcare providers, and you are limited to this network when you choose a given plan. If you visit a doctor or clinic outside of network, you will have to pay higher costs or pay out-of-pocket.

If you have a preferred healthcare provider or pharmacy already, then you can start your search by seeing which plans have your provider in their network. In your search, ask yourself if it’s more important to stay with your current provider or if you would rather switch doctors to receive the benefits of a new insurance plan.

Ultimately, if a plan does not cover visits to many doctors or specialists in your area, then it’s a good idea to explore other options.

2. Deductible

A deductible is the amount of money you must pay into your health insurance plan before it will begin to cover certain health costs. For example, a plan with a $1,000 deductible requires you to pay that full amount within the calendar year before the insurance begins to contribute to your healthcare costs. As a result, plans with higher deductibles will cause you to pay more out of pocket when you seek healthcare.

If your family is generally healthy and does not visit healthcare providers often, then you may prefer a higher deductible. However, in the event of a serious health concern, like an injury or significant illness, you will pay more out of pocket.

3. Monthly Premiums

Your deductible and premiums go hand-in-hand. The premium is the amount of money that you pay on a regular basis directed toward your insurance. Whether you are actively using your health insurance or not, you must make consistent payments toward your premiums. Otherwise, you will lose coverage. Premiums are usually paid monthly, but occasionally plans will follow a different timeline.

Generally, plans with a high monthly premium will have a lower deductible, whereas those with a lower monthly premium will have a higher deductible. Plans with lower premiums are better for people who are generally healthy and do not frequently visit the doctor. However, if a family member requires frequent visits to a doctor or specialist, higher premiums can reduce out-of-pocket costs during these appointments.

4. Prescription Coverage

Prescriptions are one of the most consistent costs for people who regularly take medications. With a family insurance plan, prescriptions can add up quickly. As a result, it’s important to consider whether a provider is going to cover the medications you and your family members currently take.

To find out whether a plan will cover your necessary medications, explore the provider’s formulary, which is a list of medicines that a plan will cover. Any medicines not listed on a formulary must be paid for out of pocket. If you have expensive medications or take several, scanning the formulary should be a priority when exploring health insurance plans.

5. Copays

Although health insurance helps provide you access to doctors and healthcare, it doesn’t mean that you will arrive at the doctor and not have to pay anything out of pocket. After looking at a plan’s premium and deductible, check the copays and co-insurance requirements.

A copay is the amount you have to pay out-of-pocket for covered services. Similarly, co-insurance is a percentage of medical bills that you are responsible for. For example, a plan might cover visits to your primary care provider, but it still might require you to pay $50 every time you go or send a bill for 20% of the cost afterward.

Most plans have different copays for different services, like primary care provider visits, prescriptions, and specialist visits. If you or a family member plans on visiting a doctor or specialist regularly, you will want to search for a plan that requires lower or no copay with each service.

6. Additional Benefits

On top of offering coverage when you go see a doctor, many plans offer additional benefits that help you manage your health in other ways. For some, the added benefits of an insurance plan are enough to tip the scales when weighing multiple options.

Some examples of additional perks include:

  • Gym membership discounts
  • Tele-health options
  • Free mental health counseling
  • No-cost preventative care

7. Customer Service

The final point to consider when researching insurance plans is the company’s track record of providing for its customers. The best way to gain insight into an insurance company’s service is to explore the experiences of current and former clients.

Read client reviews to see how the company handles cases and whether clients receive the support they expect when interacting with the insurance provider. Positive reviews are a good sign that you will enjoy a smoother experience when you need to use your insurance.
