Things to Consider When Shopping for Health Insurance

Monday, October 28th, 2013 -- 8:19 AM

-Patients are being pushed to shop more for health care by insurance plans that require them to pay higher out-of-pocket costs.

But finding the right deal is often no easy task. Here are five things to consider if you decide to shop around:

Check with your insurer. Don't make a big bill even larger by shopping for care outside your health insurer's network of doctors.

Ask for help. Your insurer may offer an application or online tool that lets you compare prices.

Press for details. Make sure you have the full picture of potential bills you may face.

Don't compare price and quality. A higher price doesn't always mean better care.

Think hard about quality. Don't weigh just price. Consider things like how much experience a provider has.
