Good Decisions Today for a Healthy Tomorrow.
The changing landscape of health insurance is a frequent cause of confusion and even frustration. Of all the insurance premiums we pay, Health is usually the biggest monthly expense, and the one where we potentially get the least coverage for our investment dollar.
Healthcare comes in many shapes and sizes with huge differences between policies and companies. Important questions must be answered, such as:
- How much will your deductible be and what counts towards it?
- What kind of treatments and prescriptions are covered?
- How much of a hospital stay will you be expected to pay out-of-pocket?
- Are there limitations?
- Are prescriptions aside from generic covered?
It is easy to get overwhelmed when looking at all the potential policies, and all of the small print that goes into them. HMOs, PPOs, Fee-for-Service plans, and more can mean that we pick the wrong policy given what we would like our healthcare insurance to cover.

Fee For Service Health Insurance
Fee-For-Service (FFS) means that providers are paid a specified amount for each service provided, just as the name implies. This means that the insurance company pays a flat rate for each service you might receive. So, for instance, they will pay a set amount of money for you to see your primary care physician. If the bill is higher than what their fee for that service is, you will be required to pay the difference.
Sometimes these policies, called Indemnity Policies, will require you to pay 100% of the bill upfront, and then seek reimbursement from the insurance company by filling the appropriate paperwork. The upside of these plans is that they offer a great degree of freedom to choose your doctor in whatever state you choose. The downside is that the monthly fees tend to be higher, and you are responsible for much of the paperwork yourself.
