The other day as I was talking to a friend about some women health related issues and I had a bit of a minor epiphany. This is a guy who’s so handy that the cars he drives are rehabbed wrecks rebuilt from spare parts—including the old Volvo that he drove to the strip-mall Mexican restaurant near my family’s house, where we were catching up. But when I asked him about health care he could only shake his head.\n\nUnder the new rule, children are eligible for dependent coverage regardless of their residency with or without their parents, their school status, whether or not they’re married or financially dependent. Contrary to what you might assume, an all-inclusive family heath insurance plan is less expensive than insuring each family member separately.\n\nToday it takes multiple health plans from multiple health insurance companies to have the best coverage at the lowest price. Health insurance companies, like individuals, cannot afford the rising costs of health care on their own today. The problem with these plans is the cost and coverage.\n\nUnderstanding health insurance benefits is very important, otherwise it can be confusing in many cases, specially when you will make a claim to the insurer to avail the insurance benefits. The challenges of balancing children, career, and personal life can be stressful.\n\nOne of the most controversial aspects of healthcare reform is the public option, which would create a federal government-run alternative to private health insurance plans. However, many general medical plans will not begin to pay for diabetic care for a good long while.
