Are You a Health Plan Pro? + $100 Amazon Gift Card Giveaway

by Heather

Are you a Health Plan Pro?

Do you even know what that means?

Because if you aren’t a Health Plan Pro you kind of need to be. Here’s a hint, if you have health insurance you need to know a lot about it. And if you don’t have health insurance, you need to get it. Not only is it a legal mandate, it’s just plain necessary anymore.  As someone who didn’t have health insurance and then found out she was pregnant…let’s just say that is not a scenario you want to find yourself in. When it happened to me, I became uninsurable (talk about your “pre-existing” conditions…) and faced the prospect of having to pay for all my prenatal care and delivery on my own. And let me tell you, having a kid in this country is NOT cheap. Fortunately that is not legal anymore, but that doesn’t mean you can walk through life unscathed in your need to know about health insurance.

To put it mildly, there are a LOT of options when it comes to health insurance. There are different insurers, different levels, different types of plans, and all of them add up to have an effect on your pocketbook and your care. So you need to know. And if you want to know, then United Healthcare has some help for you. And guess what? You can win money. When was the last time you got the chance to win money for learning something you needed to know? For me the answer is…ummm, never.

So here’s how it works. Go to United Healthcare and play some games. No seriously. Test your knowledge of healthcare with their “Are you a Health Plan Pro?” quiz.

UnitedHealthcare has created a fun campaign that will help you determine if You are a Health Care Pro while offering the chance to win great prizes.

UnitedHealthcare has partnered with Pink Ninja Blogger and a group of amazing bloggers to bring you this awesome campaign and the chance to win!

Check out UHC’s new website that will help you learn more about insurance! There are 4 Stages and we hope that you will take advantage of them all.

Stage 1: Answer a few quiz questions about health care (mostly terminology)…if you get an answer wrong, it tells you the right answer so you are learning no matter what.

Stage 2: Play a matching game surrounding the three different types of health care accounts—the FSA, HSA, and HRA. You will be given three different descriptions of the accounts, and will have to drag and drop each account label to the description it matches.

Stage 3: Use the UHC slide configurator to learn more about premiums versus out-of-pocket ratios. You will be given a family description and their health care needs (family of four / children 8 and 14…occasional need of prescriptions, visits ER once or twice a year, etc.) and must use the sliders to figure out the correlation between the premium and out-of-pocket costs for that specific scenario.

Stage 4: Use the UHC ranker to organize 8 health care situations from least expensive to most expensive (examples are having a baby, going to urgent care, having a surgery)…once you rank them, it will correct any mistakes you made so you know which item belongs where in the list…it will also tell you how each item affects your out-of-pocket costs.

NOTE: If you provide your information to enter the site sweepstakes you are eligible to win great prizes based on your engagement.

PRIZE BREAKDOWN: $100 weekly winners and $500 monthly winners.

I learned that I have not got a single clue when it comes to HRA, HSA and FSA! My current plan doesn’t have those but I am definitely going to be looking into them when we change health insurance after we move!

I learned the out-of-pocket limit is the most I will have to pay for health care in a year and that premiums don’t count toward the limit.

I learned that a Virtual visit with the doctor is the least expensive way to get medical treatment, and that there are different ways to save money on health care. Get less out of pocket expenses if needed.
