A lot of questions have been raised on health insurance. Some get skeptical and paranoid while some are completely open to the vast possibilities of having your health insured. Well this article aims to change and educate us on the life saving possibilities that can be derived from this.
No one plans on being sick neither does anyone plan for accidents to befall them. But having a sure plan to secure that this type of down fall doesn’t happen is the most effective way to ensure smooth living. Health insurance has saved more lives than any form of insurance. But a question most might ask; what do I benefit from having my health insured…
- Cheap To Acquire: Having your health insured is supposed to be an expensive investment but wonderfully enough, the price for acquiring an insurance is very affordable. Depending on the country, one is open to spend less on yearly payment which in turns, tend to do more to our well being.
- Covers Important Costs: Let’s get honest here; the health insurance is not going to cover everything but it’s worth it to many extent. Malaria, typhoid, diarrhea, accidents and even the receiving of anti retroviral drugs are all covered by your health insurance. These expenses might seem very small but they have done more good to the wellbeing of humanity.
- Saves Families From Financial Burden: Health insurance provides important financial protection in case you have a serious accident or sickness.
People without health coverage are exposed to these costs. This can sometimes lead people without coverage into deep debt or even into bankruptcy.
- Timely Care & Attention: This is one very important reason why everyone should have a health insurance. One goes to the hospital when he or she is in dire need of health care but with no insurance, its either they pay large amount of money or they are told to go for a health insurance. These timeliness can be reduced if one already has a card. The main question you are asked is, “are you ensured?” They are people who have cut the line to receive their health care because they have themselves covered by health insurance .
People tend to look at the bad side of this (where I see none). So what are you waiting for? Are you ensured? Get your health insurance now!!
