New Year, New You: Start 2017 Off Right With Blue Cross Health InsuranceDecember 22, 2016
It’s hard to believe that 2017 is just around the corner. The start of a new year often comes with a laundry list of new year’s resolutions. More often than not, these resolutions tie in with your health. While it’s great to commit to going to the gym more or keeping a closer eye on what you eat, I’d like to suggest that the best thing you can do to for your health is to invest in a personal health insurance plan. Whether you’re thinking about retiring next year, or you’re a young adult who is about to leave your parents’ coverage, committing to a personal health plan from Blue Cross is the best resolution to make.
A Blue Cross Health Insurance Plan Evolves With You
As 2017 rolls on, there could be many changes in your life. Perhaps the best thing about a Blue Cross health insurance plan is the way it is able to evolve along with you. If you decide to expand your family, you can also expand your coverage to ensure the protection of your new little one. Maybe this is the year you start your own business? Your Blue Cross health insurance can easily evolve to cover many of the benefits you’ll be losing when leaving your work’s employee benefits plan. Or perhaps 2017 is the year you retire and begin enjoying a little extra rest and relaxation. You can tailor your Blue Cross health insurance plan to emphasize the coverage that’s most important to you, ensuring your golden years are happy and healthy.
Creating a New Blue Cross Health Insurance Plan for the New Year
Building your personal Blue Cross health insurance plans begins by picking the levels of coverage that are right for you. First, you choose between three levels of health benefits:
- Entry – A basic plan offering 60% coverage for costs
- Essential – A more comprehensive plan offering 70% coverage for costs
- Enhanced – The top tier plan, offering 80% coverage for your costs
Then you choose your level of drug and dental benefits.
Alternatively, you can pass on drug and dental coverage if it’s not right for you at the moment.
Finally, you can pick and choose from additional modules, including:
- Critical Illness Coverage – A module that pays cash in the event of an unexpected illness
- Hospital Cash – A module that pays $100 per day when hospitalized
- Assured Access – A module that allows you to put your coverage on hold and reactivate it at a later date without needing to requalify
Once you’ve made your choices, you’re ready to go!
The Best New Year’s Resolution is a Resolution That’s Easy to Keep
Investing in a Blue Cross insurance plan is a great first step toward ensuring 2017 is the start of a happier, healthier you. These plans are easy to apply for, offer a wealth of coverage options, and most importantly, evolve and grow with you—ensuring you’ll always have the coverage you need, regardless of what life brings your way.
Before I go, let me wish you and yours a happy holiday season. I look forward to helping you keep your resolutions in the new year!
