Health Insurance

Personal Health Insurance in Alabama

Every year the cost of providing healthcare increases dramatically. Simple same-day surgeries, required tests and emergency attention can add up to tens of thousands of dollars or more. The overall benefits of health insurance are obvious. You won’t be avoiding the doctor because it costs too much. The hospital bills won’t be piling up on your desk waiting for attention. Your health insurance will provide the help and care you need and demand. Also, if you drive a car, health insurance will work cooperatively with your auto insurance in case of an accident.

Individual Insurance
Individual health insurance covers the medical expenses of only one person or family. Unlike group insurance, you purchase individual insurance directly from an insurance company. When you apply for individual insurance, you are evaluated in terms of how much risk you present. This is generally done through a series of medical questions and/or a physical exam. Your risk potential determines whether you qualify, and how much your insurance will cost.

What will the insurance company want to know?
Before issuing an individual insurance policy, the insurer will want to know everything about your personal health history. It is unwise to try to hide a pre-existing condition from your insurer, since many insurers use information from the Medical Information Bureau (MIB) to determine whether an applicant is insurable. If the insurer doesn’t want to cover a particular health condition, you may still be able to get a policy with an exclusion rider.

What are the benefits of individual coverage?
If available, group insurance is generally a better option, since it is usually more comprehensive. However, individual coverage is infinitely better than being uninsured in the event of illness or injury. Although you may think you can do without health insurance, you are taking a major risk if you choose not to get coverage. An unexpected illness or serious injury can put you and your family in financial peril. In a group insurance situation, the provisions of the policy are negotiated between the insurer and master policyowner (usually an employer or association). With individual insurance, you are directly in control of your policy. You can negotiate to have certain provisions included or excluded, and you can often choose your deductible amount and co-payment percentage. Keep in mind, however, that these things will affect your premiums.
