I am interviewing someone from the Georgetown Center for Healthcare Reform for a podcast episode to help people make the right decision about what to know about signing up for health insurance. Here are the questions I came up with thus far. Do you have any that aren’t listed?
What are one’s general options in regard to insurance coverage?
What should someone consider when choosing an insurance plan?
What advice do you have on getting insurance through your employer?
What advice do you have on getting insurance through the healthcare exchange?
What’s the difference between an HMO, PPO, HDHP, etc.?
What other acronyms and jargon do people need to understand the meaning of?
What discounts and subsidies are available, and what qualifies someone for them?
What other information is needed to make an informed decision?
What are some hidden benefits to look for that most people don’t know about?
How can one avoid added costs to their visits (ex. getting a cardiogram during a physical, which isn’t covered during a physical, this has happened to me)
Where to go for help if you still have questions after listening to the episode (local assistor, broker, etc.)
