When we asked Dr. Ettore Vulcano, a top orthopedic surgeon at Mount Sinai Health System, about the biggest challenges he sees patients face when seeking healthcare or navigating the healthcare system, it was evident that health insurance was at the root of many of these struggles.
"Many patients," said Vulcano, “have difficulty understanding which doctor takes which insurance plan.” He went on to explain that high deductibles often prevent individuals from seeking treatment, leaving one to wait “until their condition deteriorates so severely to require more complex (and costly) procedures.”
At Better Health Advisors, this is an issue that we see time and time again. An individual requires medical care, but their insurance plan is not well aligned to meet those needs.
Fortunately, it’s almost everyone’s favorite time of year, again: Open Enrollment. From November 1st to December 15th, individuals and families can sign up for health insurance on the Healthcare Marketplace, change plans or switch insurers. Navigating through the health insurance jargon on the Marketplace website is complicated and time consuming. However, identifying the best health insurance plan for you and your family can help ensure that you have the coverage you need, when you need it.
That’s where Better Health Advisors can help. Contact us to learn more about our custom health insurance offering, and continue to our website for our list of 5 important factors to consider when choosing a health insurance plan.
