If I didn’t already believe that “health is wealth”, then 2020 has certainly solidified that saying. With the global pandemic and recent wildfires on the West Coast, any day that I can wake up healthy, step outside, and breathe fresh air is one I don’t take for granted. This past weekend, the weather was clear, so I took the opportunity to enjoy the beauty of the Pacific Northwest by hiking the Lake Diablo trail.
While being in nature is physically and emotionally healing, another element of wellbeing is the peace of mind that comes with a carefully selected health plan. We’re in the middle of open enrollment that began on November 1st and runs through December 15th for coverage that starts on January 1st, and I’m thankful to partner with Washington Healthplanfinder to provide resources in selecting insurance coverage that best suits your needs.
Choosing my own health plans has been, at times, a confusing journey. When I was younger, I remember selecting the Cadillac of plans, and I ended up paying high premiums for coverage that I rarely used. After being burned by that, I whiplashed the other way and selected a barebones plan that didn’t cover enough, and I paid more out-of-pocket than expected for a basic doctor’s visit. I wish back then I had the resources like WA Healthplanfinder to help me make informed decisions and find the Goldilocks of healthcare plans – just right.
WA Healthplanfinder supports you in understanding and curating the insurance plan that makes the most sense by balancing coverage, deductibles and premiums, and out-of-pocket expenses. You can then enroll in a healthcare plan that aligns to your life and finances.
While I was hiking Lake Diablo, I slipped on a rocky part of the trail. Thank goodness I was not badly hurt, but had I been injured, I would have had insurance coverage. I’m able to enjoy life with the assurance that my basic medical needs will be met in case of unforeseen events.
Through this time of uncertainty, WA Healthplanfinder can help provide peace of mind, especially when it comes to something as valuable as health. WA Healthplanfinder offers a wide range of resources that empower you to get the coverage you need and pay what you expect. It’s one less thing to worry about, so I can keep being adventurous on unexpected terrain, but know what to expect from my healthcare expenses.
