Prescription Drug Plan Coverage


Another place to look for differences is the prescription drug plan coverage.

Some health plans will only pay for generic drugs.

And some plans may require you to pay the difference between the generic drug and the more expensive drug.

Some health plans offer prescription drugs after a deductible.

Recently, % signs are appearing more and more for the more expensive drugs. A % sign means is that the insurance company will pay a percentage (%) and you will pay a percentage. This is also called coinsurance.

The best part is the health insurance plan has already bargained with the drug companies for lower pricing first and then you pay a percentage(%) of that drug.

Remember, drug companies have increased their rates and government does not control their pricing and Insurance companies are paid by a percentage of the premium, so If the drug and medical prices go up, the health insurance companies will make more profit. This is a problem you wont hear from the media.

Each health plan covers specific drugs which is referred to as a drug formulary. So not all drugs are covered by all plans.

Within the drug formulary, prescription drugs are classified as a tier 1 or 2 or 3 or 4 or 5, etc. . A tier 1 drug in one health plan could be a tier 2 or 3 in another health plan. Look for this difference also.

Many health plans have preferred pharmacies who will have lower pricing. These pharmacies change every year.

So coverages, benefits, and providers change every year with every health plan.

Working with a Certified Independent Agent and Broker will help you tremendously every year.

You do not pay Independent brokers. There are no extra charges or fees. They are paid by the health plans every year to help you. And the price is the same for the health plan wheter you purchase from a certified agent or from a website. So opt for an independent agent to help you every year.

  Doctor Visits      

Doctor coverage is different with all companies and the health plans.

The first and most important question is whether your doctor and other medical providers are in the health plan provider network and the specific plan.

There are 2 types of doctors / physicians:

1. PCP - Primary Care Physician

2. Spec - Specialist

Both these doctors will have a different amount you must pay.

Another important question is whether the doctor copay is before or after the deductible?

So some plans cover primary care and specialist doctors before the deductible . . . some after the deductible.

Some plans cover specialist doctors before the deductible some after the deductible.

Some of the lower priced health plans will limit primary care physician visits to only 2-3 visits per year.

And some plans will require referrals to see specialists from your primary care physician.

These health plans are generally the lower priced plans and many are missing doctors that are in their other health plans.

So if the health plan price is lower, ask your independent agent about the differences in the doctor networks.


Deductibles in health insurance plans

  Health plan deductibles are different from one company to another company.

Plan deductibles are also different within the same company.

Here are some things to look for:

1. With some plans the deductible applies to the hospital and surgery costs only.

2. And with some plans the deductible applies to all medical costs including prescription drugs!

3. Some plans the deductible does not apply to prescriptions.

4. With some medical plans, the deductible depends on whether you have an individual or family plan.

5. Some plans, the deductible is per admission.

6. Some plans, the deductible is per day.

7. Some plans, the deductible is per year.

8. Some plans, the deductible is per person or per family.

Important - Please Read
The complexities of what the deductible means to you can adversely affect you at the time of a hospital stay or surgery.

So it is important to have a certified Independent broker to help you choose the right health plan.

Health Insurance Underwriting in CT


Some health plans will refuse you based on specific medical conditions.
If you have a serious condition it is important to talk with an independent broker who is knowledgeable about the health insurance plans.

Some words of caution:

Government plans can take away subsidies and put you on Medicaid plans when your income changes. (Husky)

Government plans can require you to pay back the medical bills they paid. These government situations are called "legal settlements."
What is considered a legal settlement should be asked to your attorney as what is considered a legal settlement can be changed by the politicians.

Government agencies requires all enrollees to provide financial statements and other paperwork to them on a regular basis. Failure to send this information on a timely basis could result with cancellation of your health insurance plan.

If your health insurance policy cancels
for nonpayment of premiums, you will have to wait til the following open enrollment for coverage effective the following January 1st.
