((dave courvoisier)) open enrollment for health insurance through the exchange began today. but picking out health insurance can be tricky. ((denise valdez)) >> there are h-s-a's and p-p-a's. marketplaces and exchanges. ((dave courvoisier)) >> so to help clear up the confusion ... consumer advocate michelle mortensen has these tips on what you should look for... during your open enrollment.
5:16 pm
consider when picking out health insurance. first check your finances. look at what you spent on medical insurance coverage previously and how much you paid out of pocket. then compare that with the frequency of your doctor visits. if you typically don't go to the doctor too often consider a higher deductible plan. your monthly insurance premiums will cost less. but your co-pays and hospital visits could be more. if you have a lot of doctor visits or have a pre-existing condition a lower deductible plan may be t know your out-of-pocket maximum. look at co-pays for visits or co-insurance to see how much extra you'll spend to see your doctor. make sure your doctors are considered in-network. typically seeing someone off your plan or out of network will cost more. if you have the option contribute to a health savings account or h-s-a. money put into the account is tax- deductible. in some cases employers can also contribute to your fund. simple tips that won't make you sick over health insurance coverage
5:17 pm
last tip ...if you are automatically re-enrolled for your plan in 2017 by your employer or the exchange ... you still should take time to review your options ... because things change. you could be elligible for subsidies .. or a cheaper plan. ((weather toss))
