  • How much flexibility do I want in choosing a specialist?
  • Will my medications be covered?
  • Are additional benefits such as dental, vision, and other benefits important to me?
  • Do I plan on moving in the future?
  • Do I have a chronic condition?
  • If I need hospitalization, do I care which hospital I go to?
  • Can I change plans, and if I can, when?
