When reviewing your options, it is important to understand whether your insurance plan limits your access to certain doctors or hospitals.  As you compare plans, make sure you view the network which goes with a particular plan.  Doctors, hospitals and other providers may be in one of the company's provider networks, but not in others.  Also, be sure to review the number of primary care physicians and specialists that are available to you and the geographic locations of those providers.  Even if you are currently healthy, it is important to pay attention to the specialists available in the networks you consider in case you need specialized care in the future.
