COLUMBIA — South Carolinians shopping on the Health Insurance Marketplace starting Oct. 1 will have to choose among 52 plans. The variables among plans could be enough to make your head spin.
Insurance agents with experience deciphering those variables want to help, and their advice won’t cost you anything. In fact, the price of an agent commission is included in Affordable Care Act policies, so you might as well take advantage of their expertise, agents say. You almost certainly will need some advice.
“I could do a spreadsheet of five different plans, and they all look the same,” said Tammie King, vice president of Insurance Management Group. “But I can see the nuances in those plans.”
