What kinds of health insurance are there?
There are essentially two kinds of heath insurance: Fee-for-Service and Managed Care. Although these plans differ, they both cover an array of medical, surgical and hospital expenses. Most cover prescription drugs and some also offer dental coverage.
These plans generally assume that the medical professional will be paid a fee for each service provided to the patient. Patients are seen by a doctor of their choice and the claim is filed by either the medical provider or the patient.
More than half of all Americans have some kind of managed-care plan1. Various plans work differently and can include: health maintenance organizations (HM0s), preferred provider organizations (PPOs) and point-of-service (POS) plans. These plans provide comprehensive health services to their members and offer financial incentives to patients who use the providers in the plan.
What is 'long-term care'?
Because of old age, mental or physical illness, or injury, some people find themselves in need of help with eating, bathing, dressing, toileting or continence, and/or transferring (e.g., getting out of a chair or out of bed). These six actions are called Activities of Daily Living–sometimes referred to as ADLs. In general, if you can’t do two or more of these activities, or if you have a cognitive impairment, you are said to need “long-term care.”
Long-term care isn’t a very helpful name for this type of situation because, for one thing, it might not last for a long time. Some people who need ADL services might need them only for a few months or less.
Many people think that long-term care is provided exclusively in a nursing home. It can be, but it can also be provided in an adult day care center, an assisted living facility, or at home.
Assistance with ADLs, called “custodial care,” may be provided in the same place as (and therefore is sometimes confused with) “skilled care.” Skilled care means medical, nursing, or rehabilitative services, including help taking medicine, undergoing testing (e.g. blood pressure), or other similar services. This distinction is important because generally Medicare and most private health insurance pays only for skilled care–not custodial care.
What are the types of disability insurance?
There are two types of disability policies: Short-Term Disability (STD) and Long-Term Disability (LTD):
Short-Term Disability policies (STD) have a waiting period of 0 to 14 days with a maximum benefit period of no longer than two years.
Long-Term Disability policies (LTD) have a waiting period of several weeks to several months with a maximum benefit period ranging from a few years to the rest of your life.
Disability policies have two different protection features that are important to understand.
Non-cancelable means the policy cannot be canceled by the insurance company, except for nonpayment of premiums. This gives you the right to renew the policy every year without an increase in the premium or a reduction in benefits.
Guaranteed renewable gives you the right to renew the policy with the same benefits and not have the policy canceled by the company. However, your insurer has the right to increase your premiums as long as it does so for all other policyholders in the same rating class as you.

What is an independent insurance agent?
An independent insurance agent is one of the three methods commonly used to buy insurance. Unlike using a captive agent, or buying directly from the internet, an independent insurance agent sells insurance policies provided by multiple insurance companies. An independent agent is not an employee of a specific insurance company, and instead eceives commissions for the policies they sell. Independent agents are able to provide clients with a wider variety of insurance options and offer a more personalized experience. Using an independent insurance agent is the best option for a personalized experience and to compare insurance rates all at once.
Why should I choose an independent insurance agent?

Does changing my insurance company affect my credit score?
There is a common misconception that changing your insurance carrier has an effect on your credit score. Changing your carrier has no effect on your credit score; you can change it as often as you like.
When I’m applying for insurance, what kind of questions should I expect to answer?
The questions asked will depend on what type of policy you are applying for. However, you may be asked your name, age, gender, address, etc. You will also be asked a number of questions that will be used to determine how likely you are to make a claim. For example, a car insurance company will want to know about a person’s previous driving record, any recent accidents or tickets, and what type of car is going to be insured. In order to determine which program you can qualify for, insurance companies need this basic information about you. Some questions asked are designed to save you money. For example, if you ride the bus to work and only drive on the weekends, you are less likely to get into an accident and will save more money than someone who has a thirty-minute commute every day.
