Health insurance is aimed at people who have concluded a contract with the chosen insurance company. This company undertakes to pay a certain part of their medical expenses if they get hurt or sick and have to visit a hospital or doctor’s office. Some contracts, or policies, may also cover the expenses on preventive health care such as annual physicals or immunizations. Instead, these people pay a premium every month in case something happens.
- However, the coverage as well as health insurance rates can vary considerably. That’s why you should pay attention to the amount of your bill that insurance companies offer to pay, and under what circumstances they’ll pay it. But the diversity of plans gives an opportunity to select the one that would be right for you and suit your needs.
- Since health care costs can be very high, a certain number of people (especially the young) forego even the most basic health insurance because they consider it an expense they simply don’t need.
But such madcaps should note that health insurance is not only the expenditure of money, but also a way to cheaper healthcare, protection from debt and bankruptcy caused by unpaid medical bills, and peace of mind.
