3 Advantages Of Teaming Up With A Health Insurance Agent!

With November on our tails, we will soon be consumed with thoughts of health coverage. The time has come to sit down, and critically evaluate our current and future health care needs. Finding the right coverage is an art of sorts. You want to make sure you can afford the plan, but that the plan will do its job in keeping you adequately covered. In order to master this art, you will need to team up with a health insurance agent. Here are just a few of the many reasons why this is a good idea:

  • The open enrollment process is only a couple of years old. While many adjustments have been made to make online enrollment less challenging, it is not a guarantee that all individuals will not run into technical difficulties. A certified Covered California agent here at Bernardini & Donovan Insurance Services is well versed in the process, and can help you overcome any speed bumps you may encounter.
  • Many individuals take less than 15 minutes to evaluate their options for a plan, and settle before thoroughly understanding how their decision could affect their life. An agent will not let you make this hasty, and unwise decision.
  • Health insurance agents have years of experience with health care, and are familiar with scenarios where an individual’s coverage was not enough. They can use this expertise to guide you in the right direction, and ensure you are not taking any risks.

You need a certified and experienced insurance agent to guide you through the process. Their assistance can help you to avoid overpaying for your plan, or having to settle for less coverage than you need. Never sacrifice coverage for price when collaborating with an agent! Please reach out to the experienced insurance professionals at Bernadini & Donovan Insurance for any assistance you may need.

Purchasing Coverage: What Are Your Options Outside the Exchange?

The Affordable Care Act mandates that all Americans must obtain some type of health insurance before January 1st, 2014. For those who do not wish to use a Health Marketplace or Exchange option, policies can still be purchased from private insurance brokers and agents as long as the policies meet the guidelines put in place by Obamacare.

The Affordable Care Act stipulates that all policies sold by agencies outside the exchange must meet or exceed the requirements of exchange policies at an affordable cost to the consumer. It also requires insurance companies to offer policies that fall within two higher level categories such as “gold and silver” or “elite and premier”. These types of policies may be more affordable in the long run for individuals who rarely seek medical attention.

Individuals who want to explore their health care options outside of the state exchange, can call Bernardini & Donovan Insurance Services. A licensed insurance agent will address your concerns and answer any questions you may have about the Affordable Care Act and private insurance.
