How Small Business Can Get the Best Health Coverage at Most Affordable Price

Frank Saltzburg, a partner with Healthcare Solutions Team, LLC (www.ushcre.com) outlines his strategies for businesses to lower their health care premiums while providing the most comprehensive health plans:
•  Always use a professional, state-licensed broker or agent who is certified as a health care reform specialist. They are trained and educated to be aware of the best plans in the ever-changing current market, both in the private and public exchanges. It does not cost you any more to use a broker since major medical rates are already approved by your State Insurance Commissioner.
•  Don’t use a public online quote engine as your final answer. It is only a starting point and is susceptible to data breaches leading to identity theft.
•  Be aware of the limitations of public exchange call center navigators who don’t hold a state-issued health insurance license. In many cases, navigators are not state-licensed to represent major medical coverage and are not even government-certified as health care reform specialists in the Affordable Care Act.
•  Use the bundle concept to give you better coverage at a more affordable price with less out-of-pocket financial exposure.

Saltzburg says there has been an influx of online insurance quote engines through the public insurance exchanges. “The problem here is these public exchange quote engines will list  ‘bargain health plans’ that typically have the smallest network of doctors and hospitals. Many people are shocked to learn their plan’s network is limited to one county within their state and their doctors are not part of these networks. A recent Associated Press survey found that most cancer hospitals don’t accept Obamacare,” he stated.

“One big, ongoing concern is that the average deductible is estimated at $5,000. However, what everyone should really be looking at is the out-of-pocket maximum per calendar year. This is the true financial exposure we all experience. We design our plans so that the deductible and the maximum out-of-pocket exposure are no longer a major issue…We bundle our plans to include accidental coverage to pay up to the deductible amount and cover out-of-pocket expenses. Plus, we offer critical illness coverage to also offset the deductible and any out-of-pocket expenses. The critical illness coverage offers the ability to have a lump sum payout allowing the insured to have an extra $5,000 to $200,000 of living expense money. While people are recuperating from their critical illness, they won’t worry about paying daily living bills. Bundling allows the insured to have a more comprehensive plan with true peace of mind,” he said. For more information, visit http://www.ushcre.com.
