If you’re getting health care through your insurance company, you’ve likely heard that the coverage you’re entitled to is only worth about 25 percent of the cost.
And, to be clear, the 25 percent doesn’t mean you get all of it.
But if you do, it can be very useful to know the value of each benefit.
Here are 10 ways to know whether you get the most bang for your buck.
What you get is based on your age, health status, income and the insurance plan you choose.
Insurance companies generally charge a fee for every additional person or family that you have, regardless of age, gender, income or other factors.
And they’ll charge more for higher-income people.
For example, if you get your health care from an employer that offers an option to purchase a health insurance policy that covers up to a certain age, the cost of the coverage is $2,000 per month.
If you have to pay $4,000 for a policy that’s only covering the next few months, that’s $6,000 a month.
But that’s less than the 25-percent value of your coverage, according to insurance experts at the Kaiser Family Foundation.
That means your plan will be worth less over time because it’s based on the age of your family and health, not your income.
So if you have a 20-year-old daughter with a $4.5 million health care policy that is only covering her until she turns 20, you might want to reconsider your plan.
If a health care plan only covers certain services, how much do you get?
Most health care plans cover certain types of health care services, such as emergency room visits, outpatient services and prescription medications.
You can choose to pay for these services in the same or different ways.
If your insurance plan only provides an “insurance” policy, the amount you get for a service depends on what your plan covers.
For instance, if your plan only covered your office visits, you’d get less money for the same services.
What happens when you have more than one health care service covered?
If you only have one health service covered, you get a lower premium for it.
This is called a “coverage gap.”
The amount of your premium depends on the total amount you paid for your health insurance.
If the gap is too big, you can see your premiums decrease because your premiums don’t cover all of the services covered by your plan, which can lower your overall health insurance premiums.
If my family is covered, does my premium go up if I don’t get insurance?
Most insurance plans will not cover any services that aren’t covered by a health plan.
But some health plans will include certain services as an “essential health benefit” under their policies, which is more expensive than the standard coverage.
That can lower the amount of the premium that you pay.

Will my insurance coverage cover my cancer treatment?
Your insurance company might pay for cancer treatments that you may or may not qualify for.
However, you may need to talk with your doctor about whether they are covered by the plan.
And you can check with your insurance agent or health plan to see if there are any exclusions or limitations.
What if I have pre-existing conditions?
Your insurer may not cover some types of treatments.
But there are ways to make sure you don’t have to buy an expensive treatment before your insurance kicks in.
For some conditions, such a breast cancer treatment, your insurer might not pay for it, even though it’s covered under the plan you’re enrolled in.
You should call your insurance provider to find out if the coverage will cover your treatment.
You might also want to check with the insurance company or your doctor before you go to see your doctor.
What’s the difference between a pre-paid plan and a monthly plan?
The term pre-paid means your insurance policy will pay for the service you need for your treatment, whether it’s your cancer treatment or your monthly checkup.
Monthly means your health insurer will pay the difference for your monthly health care bill.
How much will my premiums go up for a high-deductible plan?
Many health plans include a high deductible to help offset the cost if you don�t have enough money to pay the deductible.
For an example of how much this might cost, go here.
How will my premium be calculated?
You can use your credit or debit card to pay your premiums, or you can make a payment online through a third-party payment processor.
You could pay for your medical treatment in cash or by credit card or debit.
The amount that you owe for the treatment depends on how much money you have in your checking account.
The more you have left, the less your premium will be. 10. What
