Having health insurance is essential to making sure that you and your family can receive quality care from doctors, tend to unforeseen illnesses and accidents, get regular checkups to monitor your health and have an overall sense of security about your health and the health of your family without concerns about excessive medical bills. In Illinois, uninsured individuals- under the Obamacare laws- are subjected to tax penalties each fiscal year that they are uninsured, so having insurance is very important. You may also be eligible for tax credits that can help you pay for health insurance premiums.
There are many factors to weigh in on when you are choosing the type of health insurance that you will have in place to cover you and your family. Age, history of illness, dependents and family income are just some of the factors to consider. Whether you are choosing a health insurance plan off the open enrollment marketplace, or one from your employer, having a trained eye and the help of a professional that has vast experience in the health insurance world is important. Remember, once you choose insurance, you're locked into that plan for at least a year. You want to ensure that you pick one that will work for you.
