Facts On Alabama Health Insurance

When it comes to health insurance, Alabama doesn’t really come to mind. The more popular association to Alabama, perhaps, is a Hollywood movie or two with the word Alabama in the title (and it does sound sweet). But heres one thing you should know about Alabama: its one state that is very particular about the healthcare of its citizens. In fact, the state governor even proposed to legislate tax breaks to small-time businesses that offer healthcare benefits to employees.

But Alabama is not really that much different from all the other states in the United States, and there are some facts that may be or less true for others.

* Prices are the same, always

It doesnt matter if youre getting your healthcare plan from the healthcare provider head office or from your insurance agent. Prices across health insurance plans (specific to healthcare providers) remain the same. Under certain law, insurance providers are not allowed to sell programs at prices much than the price offered by agents.

* Dont take it personally if your pre-existing condition is not covered

Like anywhere in the United States, health care insurance providers are not prohibited from excluding pre-existing conditions from their coverage. But of course, you can always qualify for guaranteed issue health insurance if you meet certain criteria.

* Employment at bigger companies is better
