Why Health Insurance Is Important
Join 1000's of Authors at StreetArticles Today!

Today i would like to talk to you about health insurance, and why it is important! I'm sure everyone has seen the ads on the tele, stressing the importance of health insurance and why to purchase it. Question is... why? Well. for starters what is health insurance? Health insurance is something that basically guarantees you coverage on health needs such as; medication for sickness, injuries, and conditions that require regular treatment/therapy.

And with the ever changing world, there are no doubt dangers and liabilities ahead that no one can forsee.(accidents are bound to happen). Expenses without coverage can be minor to overwhelming, taking a peice of your check that is needed for basics of life; house payments, groceries, ect.. Do you have kids? certain people that depend on you? if you are affected by a health issue, and are unable to pay it OR decide to pay it and suffer the money loss required for other needs, all it really boils down to, is more stress. Both for you and for those that depend on you.

Health insurance can allow for tons of savings: So lets say you make a good deal of money and dont need a decent health insurance policy. Ok. but did you know that health insurance companies actually pay less in general to a doctor/hospital than you would on your own? Thats right. On your own your going to chuckin' away that cash you earned last paycheck. Another positive is that there is no income tax on insurance benifits, making your dollar worth even more. and with todays uncertain economy, your financial state is a major concern.

Think more seriously now; what if you or a loved one suffers a serious injury and you are unable to afford the proceedure necessary for recovery? it wouldn't be anywhere near a matter of money anymore. the anguish that comes with having a terrible injury, or seeing someone that is near and dear to you have a bad injury that you are unable to fix can put a heavy dent on your emotional status in life. Do you really want this kind of stress on your shoulders? Successful, Intelligent people in life always plan ahead, in many things that they do. Not everything negative in life can be avoided, however shouldn't you avoid the things you know you can?

So with further implementation on this serious idea, take time to reveiw the information, and think about your needs. ask yourself if these ideas pertain to you and your life, and figure out what actions should be taken to further secure your overall well-being. Is health insurance not just important to you, but is it important to those around you, those that care, and those that depend on you?
