Health Insurance

Conrad Insurance Agency can help preserve your health and your family’s health with a health insurance policy

A healthy body is a happy body and let’s face it, medical care isn’t cheap. Without health insurance coverage you could end up paying off medical bills for the rest of your life. Conrad Insurance Agency can help you find an affordable healthcare plan that’s right for you.


What are the major types of health insurance policies in Michigan?

There are basically three major types of health insurance policies for Michigan residents to choose from–consumer-directed, fee for service, and managed care. These health insurance plans help cover your medical, surgical, and hospital expenses. They may even cover dental expenses, mental health services, and prescription drugs, depending on the coverage you choose.


A consumer-directed health plan (a.k.a. “consumer-driven” or “consumer choice”) is a newer type of healthcare plan that’s designed to give you more control. As part of the plan, you setup a health fund that can be used to cover medical expenses.

Fee for Service

A fee for service plan is a more traditional healthcare plan. It means you pay a fee to your provider for every healthcare service you receive. The benefit of this type of health insurance plan is that it allows for a lot of flexibility when choosing a physician or healthcare provider.


Managed Care

Members of managed care health plans generally enjoy more benefits like lower out-of-pocket costs. However, you can only receive treatment from physicians that participate in the managed care network. Typical managed care plans include health maintenance organizations (HMOs), preferred provider organizations (PPO), and point-of service (POS) plans.
