After being hospitalized twice last December without any health
insurance coverage, I know first hand how important it is to have health insurance. Everyone uses the healthcare system at one point in their life. Even the healthiest individuals visit their doctors for regular check ups. You can not predict when an accident may happen or if a family member is going to get sick and have to visit the doctor.
Without individual medical insurance , healthcare is extremely expensive. Just the cost alone for a regular doctor’s visit can add up. Care after a serious injury or illness can be detrimental to your pocket book. Health insurance covers the cost or expense that comes with preventing illness and staying healthy.
The sad truth is that people without health insurance do not get the care that that they need. Uninsured individuals may be worried about the cost of a doctor’s visit or they just do not have access to the best resources. Health insurance policies give the policy holder access to a wide network of doctors and providers.
If you want to avoid getting sick and have a healthy and long life the best thing to do is visit your doctor for regular check ups. Preventative care is key to staying healthy. With proper health insurance you and your family will get the care you need, without the added expense, and stay happy and healthy.
