Health Insurance Plans that work are still very expensive.
But they are also a bit different from traditional health plans.
In a health insurance market, your insurer is one of the three primary sources of your health insurance coverage.
In the insurance market that you are trying to navigate, your health plan is another source.
The three primary types of health insurance are private, employer-sponsored, and government.
Private health insurance plans are generally more expensive than health insurance.
In contrast, health insurance policies for your employer and your family members usually have the same or lower monthly premiums.
Employer-sponsored health insurance has the best rates.
Government health insurance is the least expensive.
Health insurance plans for you and your children generally cost less than private health insurance, but that doesn’t mean they are the best.
In fact, some of the health insurance companies that are competing in the Affordable Care Act market are offering lower premiums than private insurers.
As you navigate the new marketplaces, you may need to negotiate prices for your health care provider, including a health care professional.
