Health insurance industry expert say don't just choose the lowest premium. Consider what your medical needs will be in 2017.

If you are looking for new or different health insurance for 2017, time is running out.

Thursday, Dec. 15, 2016, is the deadline.

Industry experts have some advice for last minute decision makers.

They say don’t just go for the lowest premium.

That might end up costing you more if you have a baby or you need regular medication.

Also, consider the convenience, reliability and access to the care you are signing up for.

Have coverage isn’t helpful if you have trouble accessing it.
