So, you are down to the wire on those health insurance open enrollment selections. If you have already browsed the informative videos on how to select a health insurance plan and save money but you are still stuck, maybe you need to take a step back to understand the basics.

Let's learn more with this "people on the street" series from United Healthcare:


What is a premium?
Interviewers asked folks on the street to define it.

What is a deductible?
Not everyone is fully up to speed on the meaning of this word.

What is a copay?
Testing the knowledge of passersby on health insurance terms.

What is co-insurance?
Some, um, interesting responses here! Learn what it really is.

What does PPO stand for?
Knowing the answer could help you lower the cost of your healthcare.


What about an EOB?
One hint: it has nothing to do with elephants.



What about my college student?
Maybe your college student needs to learn some of this "real-life stuff"? United Healthcare, a leader in health insurance services, provides a wealth of information online to help everyone to understand and make the selections that work best for them.

While students can stay on a parent's health plan until age 26, some may find it makes sense to enroll in a college-sponsored health plan. As you weigh your options, consider the provider network and coverage limits. 

If you need health insurance and open enrollment answers, United Healthcare provides them. Just pop by UHC TV to find your health plan questions and the answers you seek.
