November 1 - December 15, 2019 There are several changes in the Washington Individual and Family Health Insurance market and now is the time to enroll for 2020 coverage. There are changes to the counties that health plans are participating in and changes to the providers (physicians and hospitals) that are contracted with (in-network) with the various insurance companies. If you want to learn more about what coverage is available in your area, or if you have questions about the coverage that is available to you, I am available to assist you. I am an independent health insurance agent and have been in the WA health insurance industry for many years. I would be happy to answer your questions and help you select the coverage that is the best for you. You may contact me at (206)569-5415 or at firstname.lastname@example.org.
For those of you on Medicare, now is the time to review your current coverage and the new plan options to make sure you enroll in the best plan for you. A variety of new benefits have been added to Medicare Advantage plans such as hearing aids, travel to doctor appointments, meals after a hospital discharge, naturopathy/acupuncture and more; not all plans have added the same features. There are also some changes in premium and per service copays, depending on the plan you are on and the specific benefit.
When reviewing your current coverage or selecting a new plan, there are several factors to consider, such as provider network, pharmacy coverage (is your specific medication included in the plan formulary), out of pocket costs and limitations, premium and the service area, just to name a few.
I am a licensed agent, certified with several health plans representing multiple Medicare Advantage, Medicare Supplement and Part D Prescription Drug Plans in Washington and I can help you find the plan that best fits your unique needs.
