When it comes to the topic of accessibility of healthcare coverage everyone agrees there needs to be reform but cannot agree on how or what changes to make. The pandemic shook the globe and demonstrated specifically to Americans what the true cost could really be for those without health insurance.

The Current System

Here is what your clients need to know about the structure of modern health insurance coverage in the United States.

  • Healthcare coverage companies prior to 2008 could deny individuals due to pre-existing conditions, meaning they would not be able to be insured due to perceived ‘high-risk’. The Affordable Care Act extended healthcare coverage to millions of Americans and mandated coverage of those with pre-existing conditions.
  • Most general healthcare coverage plans are the same and offer similar benefits, networks, and price points. They all vary in premiums and deductibles limits.
  • The cost of healthcare coverage is rising at a minimum rate of 9% per year.

Looking Forward

The future of healthcare coverage is pointed in a global direction. If the last two years have taught us anything, it’s the importance of ensuring everyone has access to outstanding preventative medical care at a fair price. Since the world is more interconnected than ever, select carriers even host global healthcare coverage for travelers and those working from remote locations. This is perfect for clients who have become accustomed to working from home. The industry is innovating with the times especially in the United States. ¬†These innovations are driving widespread access at lower costs and providing patients with more possibilities for clients to receive life-changing care through advanced technologies, resources, and funding.

Technology and Healthcare

Another way technology has really changed healthcare coverage in the last year is access to remote providers. Telehealth is one of these types of benefits where clients can speak with a licensed medical professional and if needed can be prescribed medication. Clients can also speak with licensed counselors to help them with what is going on in their life. Finally, technology can help by sorting through your insurance claims, and ensuring everything is correct and you are not overpaying for the healthcare you received. Medical Bill Saver helps ensure that you are not the one in ten insurance claims that is incorrect and will negotiate the bill on your behalf saving you not only money but time and stress!
