What Makes Health Insurance Expensive?

September 14, 20222 min read

There are many factors that can affect the cost of your health insurance. Unfortunately, many of the factors influencing your rates are out of your control. It is still important to keep track of how your health insurance premiums may change, however. 

General Healthcare Costs 

The cost of healthcare in the U.S. is known to be expensive. This is due to a variety of reasons from administrative costs, a competitive market and the rising costs in various areas of healthcare. Prescription drugs, service from doctors, nurses and specialists, and hospitals all seem to be increasing in cost rather than decreasing. Since the care you are paying for is growing more expensive, insurance rates are also rising in order to offset the change. 

There are practically no set prices on healthcare services, so health insurance rates may continue to rise as long as the cost of healthcare also rises. Obviously, individuals cannot control the ever-changing healthcare costs, but it is still important to keep an eye on them so that you aren’t blindsided if your rates suddenly change. 


Your location ties into the healthcare costs you may face. Certain areas and states charge more for healthcare, which means you will likely pay more for health insurance. It also depends on what type of plan you purchase. Medicare through the government will cost differently than Medicare Advantage from a private insurer, for example. While government mandated programs may be cheaper, they also tend to have less coverage options than individual policies from private insurers. This means that many people choose private insurers so that they can get more coverage for expensive yet important healthcare services. 

Who is Covered 

Adding more people to your health insurance policy may raise your rates, but this is often necessary in order to make sure that your family has the health insurance they need. Your rates may also change depending on whether you have an individual policy or if you purchase health insurance through your employer. Be sure to speak with your employer about their offered health insurance policy and compare those rates to how much you would pay for an individual policy. 

Despite these factors, there are ways you can save money for health insurance. More insurance providers means that you can compare prices and coverages to get a price for the health insurance you need. Compare quotes and shop around to find the best policy.
