When shopping for health insurance plans in Los Angeles, there are industry-specific terms that are used, such as coinsurance, deductible, and plan level, that can make things confusing. Luckily, we are here to help.
We have gathered some very general information that can help you as you look for an individual health insurance or group health insurance policy.
Health Insurance is Just a General Term
Health insurance is just a general term that is used to describe a type of insurance. There are dozens of different plans offered by multiple insurance providers. Each plan is different and provides different coverage.
For example, some plans may provide coverage for the same services, but the amount you are responsible for paying will vary. Other plans offer coverage for different services that might have been excluded on other plans.
Most insurance plans, whether it is individual health insurance or group health insurance, are divided into one of four categories: bronze, silver, gold, and platinum. Bronze plans are often the cheapest, but they have the highest out of pocket expense and lower premium. Platinum plans cost more when it comes to premiums, but they cover more and your out of pocket expenses will be less.
All Health Insurance Plans Need to Provide Specific Services
Health insurance companies can tailor make their plans to include or exclude certain services. However, there are specific services that they are required by law to cover.
Services that need to be included with any health insurance plan include:
1. Emergency care
3. Outpatient care
4. Lab testing
5. Mental health services
6. Substance abuse recovery services
7. Rehabilitation services
8. Preventative and wellness services

In this insurance company which is ran by a dynamic couple, everything is done so professionally and with integrity that I don’t want to switch elsewhere! In fact, I switched my business and a rental home plus my residence to them. They are passionate about what they do and go the extra mile to find you the best plan with the best rate. Also, my family members switched to Absolute Value Insurance, and they were treated with the same professional manner and great prices.

I’ve worked with Serafina and Absolute Value Insurance for years and she is great. She has lots of carrier connections & always hunts for the best rates, easy to work with and turns it around very quickly — even if off hours — they’re on it.
I recommend them to all my family & close friends.
