Should I just look for the lowest premium?
It depends on your needs. Generally, the lower the premium, the more you will have to pay when you need health care. So, if you are a very healthy person (family) and do not anticipate needing a doctor very often, then maybe. You should still look at the co-pays, coinsurance, and deductibles, and ensure that you can handle these expenses if the need arises.
On the other hand, if you have pre-existing conditions, and anticipate needing health care more frequently, then you should consider a higher premium with lower out of pocket expenses for health care services.
As I stated, these are just a few of the items that you will have to compare and compare across multiple health plans in order to truly assess the options available to you.
