2. Will the cost of a health policy be deductible annually
3. Various way to reduce the overall cost
4. What type of medical coverage best suits
There other issues to consider before signing on that dotted line for a low cost health insurance policy. One of the most important issues is to research the stability of the insurance financial institution for solubility. Remember this is the insurance company that is supposed to settle and pay the claims that you submit over time. The individual entrepreneur can also check the institutions ratings with Standard & Poor for a little reassurance.
Individual entrepreneurs who are just so involved with the day-to-day operation of their new business can always talk with an agent. Insurance agents are there to help and take care of most of the footwork in finding a suitable policy. The insurance agent does have the specific connections to locate an affordable health insurance policy that will suit you, your new business and cover employees when you decide to add a few.
