If you’re married, it’s possible that both you and your spouse have insurance plans available to you either through your companies, your educational institutions or through a private health plan. You may want to compare your two health plans to ensure that you’re both getting the best coverage. It’s almost always beneficial for spouses to be on the same health plan rather than different health plans, both because it’s simpler and because it’s cheaper.
You should compare your insurance policies by a few different metrics: deductibles, copayments, out of pocket maximums, premiums, physician access and prescription medication costs. All of these things combined may make a policy that seems great more expensive than you think, or a policy that seems limited a great deal cheaper in reality. Prescription medication costs, for instance, can be extremely high if you do not have the correct plan, while some plans can knock them down to just a few dollars out of your pocket. If these options confuse you, you can always contact a professional insurance agent to go over your options with you.
