Author: defadmin 7-01-2013, 00:01

The year of 2012 was full of different occasions concerning insurance. Mostly, they were not very pleasant. So, there is a question: what will bring to us the next year and should we prepare for something worse? As it is reported on news.investors.com:

2013 will be interesting year for both insurers and consumers”, says GoHealth Marketing Manager, Mark Colwell. “Consumers are going to have a lot of questions about their options and insurers are going to want to make sure they have the answers.

Probably, the most unpleasant news is about cost of insurance policies. It is going to be higher in the following year. But consumers shouldn’t be worry about it very much. Health Savings Accounts will help to save money for insurance. By the way, more attention will be paid for fitness and wellness programs which help to keep fit. In addition, the USA government will give more rights for the consumers: they will be able to buy the insurance on their own, without the help of insurers.
Then, all of the members of the LGBT (lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender) community will have an access to have an insurance plan.
And, at least the last predicted news:
The rise of defined contribution plans among employers. A defined contribution plan involves employers giving their workers a fixed sum of money and letting them purchase their own health insurance from an online marketplace. The defined contribution trend has been picking up major steam recently as a way for businesses to contain rising health care costs
