Even if a certain plan fit you well in the past, your needs may have changed, thus, you need different coverage. It is best to make needed changes during the open enrollment period for vision and dental insurance as well. You should evaluate your insurance yearly. Pay attention to the changes and new plans. Do not volunteer any information if you get a phone call from an insurance company. Be sure that you are only answering the questions that they ask. Every communication that you have with the company is notated and assessed when trying to figure out your premiums or coverage. Sometimes the extra information you give could be used against you to deny you coverage, or at minimum an increase to your premiums. Take advantage of the “free look” period. This will enable you to use the policy for between 10 and 30 days, and literally test it out. If you decide the policy isn’t for you, you can cancel it, within this time frame, and you will get a refund.
