I worked in an office with a corporate employee benefits broker prior to leaving due to being sick all of the time while pregnant with my second child. I remember while working there that I learned so incredibly much about health insurance, short & long term disability and life insurance plans as well as dental and many more. I can’t believe the wealth of information inside my brain from having held this position!
One of the things I do recall while I was working there is that the whole medicare part d started up and things got a little bit more confusing for me. I still don’t fully understand this because it doesn’t affect me at my ripe age of 29 almost 30 years. I do know that it affects my grandparents possibly and maybe even my great grandparents.
That is why I am so thankful there are many consumer guides out there to help others, who haven’t held a position learning health insurance plans before. People need real language so that they can fully understand just what they are getting themselves into or what they need to have proper coverage should they go ill.
I will let you in on a little secret .. I LOVE reading health insurance plans, truly LOVE it. I miss that job.
