Today there are more health plans to choose from than ever before. Not everyone has a choice. But if you do, this section can help you choose the plan that will help you find the right urologist or nephrologist.

Do not assume that plans cover or provide certain items. Ask for any specifics you may think of before choosing a plan.

When you have found a few names of doctors you might want to try, call their offices. The first thing to find out is whether the doctor is covered by your health plan and is taking new patients. If the doctor is not covered by your plan, are you prepared to pay the extra costs? These days, healthcare has become much more affordable. So if you don't have insurance yet, then it might be worth your while to look into it. Besides, a lot of health related costs have positive tax implications, so keep that in mind when submitting your annual efile. Regardless, having insurance is generally cheaper than paying out of pocket.

What you need to understand is not the plan's label, but the characteristics of the plan. Research shows that it is important to understand your options and how they affect your choice of providers and services, costs, and quality of care.
