Why Do You Need Health Insurance?
Health insurance can seem expensive, but not having it could cost much more. The inability to pay medical bills after a serious health event is one of the most common reasons people file for bankruptcy. Having health insurance can help protect you from the high cost of health care, especially related to chronic conditions and hospitalization.
You buy health insurance for the same reason you buy other kinds of insurance; to protect yourself financially. With health insurance, you protect yourself and your family in case you need medical care that could be very expensive. Whether you are relatively healthy or chronically ill, health insurance can provide financial protection you need for both routine and unexpected healthcare. You can’t predict what your medical bills will be. In a good year, your costs may be low. But if you become ill, your bills could be very high. If you have insurance, many of your costs are covered.
