Low Cost Yuma Health Insurance Plans

by Steve

Many times there are circumstances that make finding low cost health insurance plans necessary.  Changing jobs, graduating college or needing to supplement existing coverage all make it necessary to try and find the best health coverage at the lowest price possible.  When it comes to your health, finding the right plan can make a big difference.

When changing jobs, you can take a look at short-term health insurance policies to fill the time between employer sponsored coverage.  These are often also referred to as gap or temporary insurance and are designed to provide varying levels of coverage for specified periods of time.

These kinds of low cost Yuma health insurance plans can be very helpful in covering certain kinds of care, but often do have limitations that you will need to be aware of.  Make sure you understand exactly what is covered, and what is not.

If your circumstances have changed dramatically and you are no longer able to afford health insurance, you may be eligible for local, state or federal programs.  Start your investigation at the Foundation for Health Coverage Education, which is a not-for-profit organization that provides tools to assist you in finding low cost health insurance or alternative options in your state.  They have an Uninsured Hot Line at 800-234-1317 where you can speak to a live operator 24 hours per day and 7 days a week.

Other resources for low cost health insurance plans or free care are:

State-sponsored High Risk Pools – check with your state’s insurance department or consumer services for more information.

Community Health Centers – these are regulated by the federal government and provide care to those without health insurance have sliding fee scales based on income.

Free Clinics – are often staffed by volunteer physicians and nurses and also depend on donations from the community to run.

More than anything else, make sure that you are taking care of yourself.

Losing your job and having to investigate low cost health insurance can be stressful and frustrating.

Taking control of the situation can be helpful but you don’t have to do everything by yourself.

Ask friends and family for support, find local support groups for those who have been laid-off or talk to your doctor about your health insurance situation.  He or she might have ideas about cost saving measures for you.
