Tips for choosing medical insurance
Annual claim limits: the annual claim limit set by a medical insurance plan can range from less than $100,000 to millions of dollars. A higher the claim limit often allows for better protection from the high expense of major emergencies and hospitalization.
Pre-existing disease coverage: generally, medical insurance plans for individuals and small institutions do not pay insurance benefits for pre-existing diseases and conditions. However, some health insurance plans may cover certain past conditions. When you apply for such an insurance plan, the insurance company may require you to provide a complete medical record to confirm whether your prior or existing illnesses are covered by the insurance. Often such insurance plans are two to three times more expensive than plans without coverage of pre-existing disease coverage.
Coverage of outpatient treatment: when you only consult a doctor through a clinic appointment rather than hospitalization, your care is considered outpatient. Outpatient services may include doctor consultation, laboratory tests, prescription drugs and subsequent examinations. If you have been to an outpatient clinic for diseases such as a fever in the past two years, you may consider whether the outpatient services were covered by your insurance plan.
Annual physical examination and routine treatment: large group insurance plans usually cover an annual physical examination and routine treatment services. Insurance plans for individuals or small companies may also cover these services, though a waiting period may be required. Sometimes mammograms, genetic tests, prostate tests, vaccinations and eye services fall into this category. You may contact your insurance company to confirm the relevant requirements and terms.
