Why is Health Insurance Important?

Why is Health Insurance Important?

In the same way that you pay for insurance on your car or home, health insurance gives you peace of mind and helps protect against unexpected sickness or injury.

Even better than car or home insurance, which does not pay for regular maintenance services, health insurance does pay for regular preventive care like adult and childhood vaccines, checkups and certain screenings like mammograms and prostate exams.

With predictable monthly premiums, and access to preventive care, you can take charge of your health and your future.

Preparing for the Unexpected

Health insurance can protect you from the risk of unexpected medical bills. Did you know that mending a broken leg can cost up to $7,500 if you don’t have health insurance?
