Health insurance is a basic component of any individual’s financial strategy that helps to limit the insured’s risk against financial loss because of illness or injury. It is a contract between the insurer and the insured where the insurer promises to pay a portion or all medical costs in the exchange for monthly premiums.
Types of plans range from HMO (Health Maintenance Organization), POS (Point Of Service), PPO (Preferred Provider Organization) and HSA (Health Savings Account). These plans can be purchased through an employer or privately.
Why It's Important
Everyone should own health insurance to limit the exposure of risk when unexpected high medical costs are incurred. Health insurance also provides access to comprehensive, quality healthcare services that can improve a person’s quality of life and help prevent the spread of disease.
