What is the purpose of health insurance?
To offset the costs of medical bills. The idea is that you are still responsible for the bills, but the LARGER costs are usually picked up by the insurance company. It's not a scheme so that you never have to pay anything for services, it just makes it a little more affordable.

Requirements for licensing vary on a state-by-state basis. One thing that is always the case is that you will be required to take a pre-licensing examination specific to the… line of Health Insurance. Many states allow anyone to take the exam without specific education requirements (although pass rates are very low for individuals who do not prepare first). Other states have classroom or course requirements, so agents will have to demonstrate that they have passed an approved prelicensing course before they can take the licensing exam. Once you have been licensed in one state, transferring your license is usually pretty straightforward, and you will just want to contact the Department of Insurance of your new state and find out the process from them.

Answer A co-pay is a flat payment that is the responsibility of the patient that is assessed to an event; such as a doctor visit or a prescription purchase. Sim…ilare to a copay...co-insurance is typically a calendar year responsibility of the patient; such as 20% or 30% that is paid by the patient after meeting a deductible (if applicable). There is usually a maximum out-of-pocket limit, such as $1,000, $2,000 or higher that is the most a member can pay prior to the plan paying 100% during a calendar or benefit year. Copays do not always count toward the out-of-pocket limit. Example of how a co-pay event might work.... Patient visits doctor for cold. Patient pays $20 co-pay at time of visit. Doctor bills insurance $100 for "sticker price" of the visit and $20 for labwork. Because the doctor is a contracted "in-network" provider, the insurance carrier only allows $65 to be charged for the office visit. Since $20 has already been paid by the patient, they send a payment to the doctor of $45. The insurance carrier determines that the $30 is subject to coinsurance and pays 80% and determines that the patient is responsible for the other 20% - or $4. The patient would ultimately receive a bill from the doctor for $4.
It is not illegal to go without health insurance in the United states, other countries may have different laws. In the USA, it will soon be required to hold health insurance… or pay a tax. The tax will start out as a minimum of $95 in 2014. It will raise to $695 minimum bu 2016, but the tax for a family can not raise beyond 3 times that of the single person tax, no matter how many in the family. In 2017 the tax will rise each year in order to be equal to inflation. There will be exemptions and tax breaks depending on income, whether or not you can afford the plans offered by your employer, etc. As well as insurance plans scaled to income in order to attempt to make insurance affordable to all, making the tax avoidable.
In general, health insurance covers the cost of medical or hospitalization care as a result of an illness or injury that occurs or is manifested while the policy is in force. …Like other kinds of insurance, the benefits are payable in return for the insured paying a premium. A premium is the amount of money charged by the insurer for the coverage. The coverage can be any one of a number of varieties, depending upon what is purchased: 1. Fee for service. This involves the health care provider billing the insurer for a fee, and the insurer paying all or part of it. Generally, there are guidelines that the insurer follows in determining the amount to be paid, and it is often determined by a community standard. The policy itself provides that the person insured must pay a portion of the charges per visit or occurrence (the deductible), and also what of usually called a co-payment. The latter reflects the fact that a policy may pay only a percentage of the allowable charge, for example, 80%. The corollary is that the insured pays the remaining 20%. In general, the larger the deductible and co-payment that the insured assumes, the lower the premium, because the insurer is at risk for less. 2. PPO. This stands for Preferred Provider Option. In a nutshell, healthcare providers agree to become a part of the insurer's network of providers, and pre-negotiate fees for stated procedures. An insured who is a member of a PPO typically sees a physician or goes to a hospital that is in the network, and gets the benefit of the reduced fee. The PPO pays the pre-negotiated rate, subject to the insured being responsible for a deductible and a co-payment (as discussed above). If the insured goes to a non-network provider, normally the deductible or co-payment is higher. 3. HMO. This stands for a Health Maintenance Organization. Ir is a form of what has become known as "managed care" and emphasizes preventive care. It has several models, including one involving in-house physicians, and one involving physicians who maintain their own practices but are devoted mainly to HMO patients. For a fixed monthly fee, the patient is entitled to a range of services. Costs are kept low because medical expenditures are monitored closely and permission is required to see an out-of-network provider.
