If you are looking for a health plan quote, be sure you check out the choices to compare plans because different providers offer varying benefits, therefore it’s up to you to pick the one that functions for you depending on requirements.

If it’s affordable medical coverage you are looking for, for example, you may try HMO, which gives relatively low-cost health plans. Or you can choose PPO, that is like HMO as there is a scroll of doctors and hospitals which the provider recommends. However as opposed to HMO, you can pick a healthcare company not on the list, though you will have to pay an extra fee. And, naturally there’s HSA, which offers the lowest-cost health plans, as it delivers in conjunction with the high deductible health insurance plan.

Going online works!

Given the ever increasing influence of the Internet, every major provider offers health plan quotes onlint, thus finding the perfect plan for you is much more convenient. Also you can usually fill in forms online, making your legwork is reduced to a minimum.

But remember

No matter how tempting the health plan quotes, you need to be hard-headed and figure out a couple of things. For instance, you must be wary of health plans that promise total coverage because there’s no such thing, really. Be very aware of the deductible cost as usually the lower the quote, the more the deductible will be.

Thus check out the small print to find out exactly what all the costs are, as well as whether the health plan is complete enough to cover other members of your family, and whether it covers for different sorts of medical examinations.

Beyond basics

You also need to find out whether specialist care and referrals are covered. What would happen if of an emergency and if you need immediate hospitalization? Will the health plan cover all prescription drugs?

Most of us can’t wait to find out what our project will cost. I bet that’s top on your mind if you’re thinking of remodeling or building a home.

Once we have our project defined, and plans made, it’s time to contact builders and get quotes. Usually this means calling some General Contractors (GC) to have them put together a bid or quote. But, what is the GC actually doing and what’s included in the quote?

The General Contractor’s First Priority

The first thing to remember is that the GC is hoping to win your business. He can do that by making a good first impression, having excellent referrals to give you, and/or providing you a quote that beats all others.

For some builders, their tool of choice when it comes to gaining your business is to quote as low as they feel they can. But, they can’t shoot themselves in the foot. Quoting low means they have to build in wiggle room to up the quote during construction depending upon how the process goes.

Other builders will try to quote the top end price and let you know it could come in under. Everyone has his or her own style of quoting and doing business and they may or may not let you in on their process.

As simple as getting a quote can seem on the surface, it can really be quite complex. Confusing to you as the consumer, and complicated and tricky for the builder.

What You Need to Know About the Contractor’s Quote

Despite the complexity and flexibility of a contractor’s quote, we can break it down to its basic components and processes. Here’s what goes into a GCs quote:

The Builder needs a set of plans. He or she will either use the blueprints you provide or create them based upon your input.
From the plans/blueprints, the GC/builder will create an extensive materials list, price it out and then add a mark-up of an average of 20-40%
Labor costs are figured based upon the GCs experience and bids received either from subcontractors they know or random bids generated.
To account for fluctuations in materials and labor costs, the GC will either build in a contingency factor in the quote or explain the flexible nature of his quote.
Finally, they will build in their profit margin and mark-up the quote by an average of 12-30% depending on location, complexity of the job, and their own business practices.

Understanding this process will make it easier for you to discuss any quotes you get logically with your builder. A good builder will want you to know what’s involved in the quote and where the potential for changes might lie.

Always Get Competitive Quotes

I recommend that you get a minimum of three bids for your project. The price you get is not the only thing you’ll evaluate. Armed with these quotes and the information gained during your communications with them, you can now formulate opinions about doing business with them. It will become clear to you that it’s not just about choosing the lowest bid.

Keep reading and learning. The more you know about the bidding and quoting process, the better you’ll be at choosing the right builder for you.
