    Ways to Get the Most Out of Your Health Insurance

    By Mark Schauss | June 2, 2008

    In today’s ever escalating health insurance cost atmosphere, insurers try to get you to use the least of your benefits while charging you more and more every year. I’ve seen this scenario play out with my daughter Tasya, when Mega Health and Life Insurance screwed us by saying that the MRIs and CT scans she had were unnecessary even though it is considered the standard of care for newly diagnosed epileptics. BTW, never buy insurance from those people, it’s a waste of money.

    While using the program Stumble, I came across the following article entitled Nine Secrets Health Insurers Don’t Want You To Know. Here is the nine topics they discuss. I suggest you read the article carefully if it interests you

    1. Don’t pay if you don’t have a say.
    2. You may be eligible for more coverage.
    3. To get tested, talk up your symptoms.
    4. Stall first, answer questions later.
    5. Letters are your best bet.
    6. Doctors can be good weapons.
    7. A little research can go a long way.
    8. There are ways to get drugs cheaper.
    9. An advocate can help you win.

    Good advice that everyone with health issues should know about
