Selecting a Health Insurance Plan
People that get their health insurance coverage through their employer, or their spouse's employer can often be limited in the choices they have in health coverage. However, people that are purchasing their own health care insurance police have many choices that they are able to make as to the type of health care coverage, choosing which doctors you will be able to see, and many other options relevant to their healthcare.
COBRA Insurance - The Basics
People who have health insurance provided by a current employer, and are considering a job change to a new employer, can use COBRA insurance coverage as a means of retaining the same health coverage in the interim. Even people that are self-employed can make use of COBRA insurance. COBRA is an acronym for Consolidated Omnibus Budget Reconciliation Act; it recognizes the fact that employees have a right to maintain their current health insurance, as long as they are willing to pay the premiums.
