Help with open enrollment
December 4, 2011 in Health Insurance
I’ve been thinking about Sarah (sitting at the kitchen table?), pouring through insurance documents as she tries to decide whether a cheaper tiered insurance plan would work for her family.
Sarah – I’m going to get you more information about how insurers tier docs, but your post also made me wonder what tools are out there to help people choose insurance plans. I sent out a Tweet and got two suggestions. If anyone wants to test these options and write a review – please do!
Here’s one – Cake Health has a new feature to help consumers during open enrollment:

Sarah – I don’t see any reference in these videos to tiered plans. The videos could probably be adapted, but your question is really…how do the insurers decide which tier to put doctors in and why does a doctor’s rating vary from one insurance plan to the next? More on that soon.
