YOUR HEALTH PLAN
While your health insurance won’t be your first consideration in the middle of a disaster, it could be crucial in the aftermath. Aetna recommends policyholders understand their coverage before a disaster strikes.
Are you covered for catastrophic or long-term injuries? What about rehabilitation, and if you need it, what is the lifetime maximum? What are your options if you need medical care away from home? Talk to an agent so there are no surprises.
It’s also a good idea to know the nearest in-network urgent care center, Aetna representative Susan Millerick says. You’ll want to go to the emergency room for a true emergency, but that’s the last place you want to be for something less serious in a disaster.
“Going to urgent care can save you time, money and stress,” Millerick says.
