With any group health insurance plan that you choose, there are always going to be limits to that plan, and before you purchase a particular group health insurance plan for your company, you will want to do your homework. For instance, you will want to find out what is offered and covered under the proposed group health insurance policy and if the health insurance company is financially sound. If they are in the midst of a merger for example, or not as financially stable as you would like, their delivery of service may not be as good as is promised.
It is also important to understand what kind of features and benefits will be provided in the health plan that you are buying. In some cases, a group health insurance plan will be presented with a summary of benefits, but this is just a summary. For complete details as to what the plan consists of, or to get information on the exact ins and outs of the plan, you will need to request the information from your health insurance representative.
To help you narrow down your decision between health insurance plans, we have listed some questions and helpful tips below. These questions and tips will help keep you on track with what kind of plan you initially set out to purchase for your organization.
Check with the Better Business Bureau (BBB) or the state insurance department, or ask for the latest member-satisfaction survey and see if there are any complaints against the health insurance company you are considering working with. In addition to calling the BBB, request the names and phone numbers of other companies and organizations who have the group health insurance plan you are considering. Call and find out why these companies have this group health insurance plan, why they like it, if they've encountered any problems, and if so, how the health insurance company handled it.
