Health Insurance Resources Help Simplify Buying Process|
STEPHENVILLE, Texas — Help has arrived for those looking for health insurance.
With one in four Texans living without insurance, the Texas Department of Insurance has developed a Web site, http://www.texashealthoptions.com/, to help navigate the health insurance purchasing process. The Web site offers a glossary of health terms and detailed information about the purchasing process and what to do once you have coverage.
“Health insurance coverage is crucial to protecting yourself in case of a medical emergency,” said Dr. Jeffrey Moore, a physician on the medical staff at Texas Health Harris Methodist Hospital Stephenville. “The prices may seem steep at first glance, but a lengthy hospitalization, illness or surgery can devastate a family’s financial future. Unfortunately for too many Texans that possibility becomes a reality.”
To avoid the worry of the consequences from an unexpected illness or accident, perhaps the simplest thing to do is your homework. Researching plans well in the beginning can pay off well in the long-run. Hiring an insurance broker also can help. The insurance department’s web site offers links to plans and calculators to help make decisions.
