Our health is really important, take it for granted to save a few dollars, and the repercussions will hunt you in the future. It will cost you a lot and will surely drill holes in your pocket. Furthermore, if you cannot work due to your health, how will you earn for yourself and your family?
Just like money, we never really have a true idea of its value until we lose it.
Life is unpredictable. That's why health insurance is important, it's designed to protect us in case of emergency. It guarantees medical treatment based on your coverage.
Insurance can be expensive but it's worth it. A report by the New York-based Commonwealth Fund estimated that 84 million adults in the US have inadequate health care coverage. Families are foregoing care because they cannot afford it, even with the implementation of the AffordableCare Act in January 2014. The under-insured and uninsured will just be transferred to an inferior plan with huge out-of-pocket costs.
Investing in insurance now is like investing in your quality of life. Having good health and preventive care plan may help but there's really nothing better than knowing that you and your family are protected.
