    Choosing a Health Insurance Plan

    • Do I have the right to go to any doctor, hospital, clinic, or pharmacy I choose?
    • Are specialists, such as eye doctors and dentists, covered?
    • Does the plan cover special conditions or treatments such as pregnancy, psychiatric care, and physical therapy?
    • Does the plan cover home care or nursing home care?
    • Will the plan cover all medications my physician may prescribe?
    • What are the deductibles? Are there any co-payments? Deductibles are the amount you must pay before your insurance company will pay a claim. These differ from co-payments, which are the amount of money you pay when you receive medical services or a prescription.
    • What is the most I will have to pay out of my own pocket to cover expenses?
    • If there is a dispute about a bill or service, how is it handled?
