Open enrollment allows consumers health insurance choices

Posted On Wed, November 9, 2011

A recent report from health insurance company Cigna outlined the ways a consumer can take advantage of the open enrollment period for health insurance quotes.

Many consumers are not big fans of checking benefits packages or examining cost projections, but it may be a good idea to do this in order to make the right decisions for the health of an entire family, the company noted. Ensuring that a doctor is in the network of the healthcare plan in question is a smart idea, and being certain that a needed medication is attached is also a good idea.

"Health coaches, counselors, nurse case managers and other health care experts are often available to people with one phone call," said Dr. Alan Muney, chief medical officer for Cigna. "My advice is for people to think of their health care plan as a resource they can use to stay healthy and well, and not just something they think about and use when they’re sick."

It may be a good idea for consumers to always look for health insurance quotes, as this can ensure they will have the most coverage for the money.
