Introduction to Health Plan Options

Health Plan Options was created by the Minnesota Department of Health - Minnesota Health Information Clearinghouse to assist you in exploring your health insurance options. One of the reasons you buy health insurance is to protect yourself from the high costs of medical care. In addition, some forms of health insurance make it easier to obtain care.

Today there are many types of health insurance and more choices than ever before. Health insurers offer a wide variety of products that vary by cost, level of benefits and providers. Health Plan Options provides examples of the kinds of questions you should ask and provides general information on the different types of insurance. Although the guides do not cover every scenario nor answer every question about health insurance, they are intended to give you a starting point to finding the health coverage you need.
