Examine your health insurance policy to determine the prescriptions that it covers. This list changes from year to year so check the list when you re-enroll, to make sure that you are not going to be surprised when you go to refill your prescription. If you just graduated from college and are looking for health insurance, consider the following two options. If you’ve got a job, use the employee-based insurance it provides. If you are 25 and under, you can still be part of your parents’ plan. Of course, you can also check for your own individual plan if neither of those works. Read your policy to ensure you know exactly which prescriptions are covered and which are not. The list of covered items is called a formulary in the insurance world and this list changes every year. Some new items will be covered, and some older ones may go away so reviewing every year is important. If you find that a previous prescription is no longer covered, talk to your doctor about switching to one that is.
Make sure you understand every penny you need to pay for health insurance. Think about the price tags of your copay, your premiums, your deductibles and any other applicable costs. Choose the plan that’s best for you.
