Cut Through The Confusion
Are you struggling with health care costs? Cut Through the Confusion on Medical Bills and Health Insurance will help to keep you from making common mistakes that can cost you a fortune in medical bills. The health insurance section will help you understand the different types of health insurance and even has a calculator to help you pick the right health insurance plan for you.
You work hard, and you try to make the best decisions you can to get ahead financially. You want to provide for your needs and still have enough time and money left to enjoy life. But this can feel out of reach when the cost of groceries and other necessities seems to go up faster than your wages do. Or when any extra money you may have ends up going toward car repairs or other unexpected expenses.
When you add this to the rising cost of health insurance and the stress of navigating all of the health care changes, it’s enough to make your head spin. As deductibles go up, so do your out-of-pocket expenses. Even going to the doctor for a case of strep throat can throw your budget for a loop, especially when you consider that the medical provider’s bill, lab costs, and your prescription can set you back a couple of hundred dollars – a couple of hundred dollars you didn’t have and that you didn’t plan on spending in the first place. And if you happened to have chosen a provider that isn’t on your insurance company’s list, your costs could be doubled.
All of us want to believe that tomorrow will be better than today. And few of us want to believe that unexpected events will happen to us. But what happens when they do?
