Healthcare Considerations

Multi-State homeowners may come across some unique healthcare considerations. Here are some important healthcare considerations to keep in mind:

  1. Health insurance coverage: Review your health insurance coverage to ensure that it provides adequate protection in all the states where you own homes. Some health insurance plans have limited coverage or networks outside of your primary residence’s state. Consider a plan that offers nationwide coverage or explore options for supplemental insurance if needed.
  2. Access to healthcare providers: Research and identify healthcare providers in each state where you own a home. Find primary care physicians, specialists, hospitals, and clinics that can meet your healthcare needs. Consider factors such as proximity, reputation, and availability of services.
  3. Medical records management: Maintain a centralized system for managing your medical records. This can be especially important when seeking care in different states. Ensure that you have copies of your medical records readily available or consider using electronic health record systems to easily share information between healthcare providers.
  4. Prescription medication management: If you require prescription medications, ensure you have a reliable system for managing refills and ensuring continuity of care. Speak with your primary care physician about options for obtaining prescriptions and consider using mail-order services if necessary.
  5. Emergency preparedness: Develop a plan for emergency situations, considering both your primary residence and any secondary homes. Research nearby hospitals and emergency services in each location. Keep emergency contact information easily accessible and consider sharing it with a trusted family member or friend who can assist in case of an emergency.
  6. Telehealth options: Explore telehealth services that allow you to access medical professionals remotely. Telehealth can be especially useful when you’re in a different state or unable to visit a healthcare provider in person. Familiarize yourself with telehealth platforms and ensure that your health insurance covers these services.
  7. Medicare considerations: If you’re eligible for Medicare, understand how it works across state lines. Original Medicare generally provides coverage nationwide, but Medicare Advantage plans may have specific networks and coverage limitations. Review your plan’s details or consider consulting with a Medicare advisor to ensure you have appropriate coverage in all states.
  8. Advisors to address your specific needs and circumstances. They can provide personalized guidance and ensure that you have appropriate healthcare coverage and access in all the states where you own homes.
