Contest: Your Healthcare Questions Answered (and win $100 and $500!)
posted by: Amber Johnson
If I had to make a Top 10 Most Dreaded List, selecting a healthcare plan and dealing with the ongoing complication of co-pays, deductibles, what is covered, what doctors are “in network,” terms like “HSA,” generic vs. non-generic prescriptions and so many more are enough to overwhelm the best of us.
I grew up in Canada with socialized medicine that involves a single-payer system where the government finances and provides the care. There are huge pluses to this kind of system where you’re guaranteed care but there are also long waiting lists and substandard treatment. There’s no question that American health care, a mixture of private insurance and public programs, is a mess. And when you’re self-employed like my husband and me, navigating our healthcare is an ongoing battle.
When UnitedHealthcare offered to team up to help bring clarity to the confusion, I was all-in. I appreciate the efforts they are making to help everyone (not only their customers) understand the intricacies of healthcare plans in a fun way.
