For individual health insurance Texas residents have a lot of choices to make. There
are over a dozen companies that offer individual health insurance Texas policies.
Some of the types of individual health insurance Texas policies available are accident
only, basic hospital, disability income protection, limited benefit, major medical, and
short-term major medical. You can get a lot of information about individual health
insurance Texas policies from the web site of the Texas Department of Insurance.
They have created a health insurance exchange web portal designed to help residents
of the state of Texas find helpful information about individual health insurance Texas,
as well as other insurance related matters. Even small business owners can find
information about group health plans, rather than individual health insurance Texas
plans, on this web site.


According to statistics, approximately one in every four Texas has no benefits or
coverage through either a group health plan, or an individual health insurance Texas
policy. This is unfortunate because it is very important to protect yourself and your
family from unexpected illness or injury. A large number of personal bankruptcies that
occur in the United States can be traced back to medical bills that accumulated and
were eventually too big to pay off. Having coverage through a group health plan, or
an individual health insurance Texas policy, is very important and can be helpful if
you or your family require medical care. Actually, benefits can be used for preventive
care, and therefore, to avoid becoming ill or unhealthy in the future.


The Texas Department of Insurance has recently set up the TexasHealthOptions.com
section of their web site to help consumers with their individual health insurance
Texas plan questions. They recommend using an independent agent, although they
warn that you should make sure the agent is licensed in the state of Texas. An agent
represents many different companies and can therefore speak about many different
individual health insurance Texas plan options. You can get quotes on several
individual health insurance Texas policies at one time, with just one phone call.


Probably the origin of the Texas Health Options web site is the mandate by the federal
government, as part of the health care reform act, for all states to set up a health
insurance exchange web portal to help consumers make wise choices when it comes
to purchasing individual health insurance Texas plans. This information is supposed to
be presented in a simple manner, enabling consumers to compare individual health
insurance Texas policies side-by-side. The web site includes a glossary of terms that
you should be familiar with so you can understand the fine print and details of the
individual health insurance Texas plan paperwork and application.
Because all the different health insurance providers have many different plans, the
information about individual health insurance Texas policies can be overwhelming to
the layperson, unless they are very familiar with the health insurance industry. Dont
be afraid to ask for help from either the Texas Department of Insurance or a licensed
insurance broker who is familiar with individual health insurance Texas plans.
Remember that the broker does not have to reside in Texas, but only has to be licensed
in Texas to sell individual health insurance Texas policies.
