Last week I had made a post in regards to open enrollment season, but just today David Bach of The Automatic Millionaire wrote an article covering this very subject. He goes into a bit more detail in regards to some of the different health insurance options available, which is a confusing area for many people. It is definitely worth a look.
He also provided some good links for more information.
The choices can be complex, but don’t be alarmed. Instead, get the facts. For full details on the different types of plans, check out these helpful web sites:
- The U.S. Department of Health and Human Services Agency for Healthcare Research and Quality
- Plan for Your Health
While you’re there, check out the free book you can order called Navigating Your Health Benefits for Dummies.

Not all sexual discrimination is for the bad. Insurance companies discriminate all the time. Why should the good risks subsidise the bad risks? Which is why women, generally, pay less for life insurance than men do. A 30-year-old woman is, the statistics tell us, likely to live another 49.67 years, whereas her 30-year-old boyfriend will only kick on for another 43.51 years.
