Kansas City, Mo., - Health insurance--critical to the peace of mind of most Americans--has become increasingly complex and expensive, according to The National Association of Insurance Commissioners (NAIC). A maze of options and cost considerations--from health maintenance organizations to health savings accounts--now confront consumers.To help individuals clear up the confusion and gain a better understanding of the costs of their coverage, the NAIC has assembled useful information about health insurance--all organized by life stage needs--on its new consumer education Web site called Insure U at http://www.insureuonline.org/.

"The better consumers understand their health insurance options, as well as their share of the costs for premiums, co-pays and deductibles, the better they'll be able to plan for health related expenses," says Alessandro A. Iuppa, NAIC president and superintendent of the Maine Bureau of Insurance. "We've created Insure U to help educate consumers about insurance."
