Why do you need health insurance?

You may be able to fit a few doctor's visits or prescriptions into your budget. But if you have a major medical event, a health plan can protect your family's finances. Serious diseases or accidents often need surgeries, treatments, medications and specialists that can easily cost hundreds of thousands of dollars.

Having a health plan is smart

A health plan is much more economical in the long run than to run the risk of major damage to your family’s finances.

If you have a health plan, you’ll also be more likely to get routine checkups and preventive care which helps you stay healthy – and saves money on medical costs in the long run.

It can be affordable, too

A health plan can fit your budget because you can choose the coverage you want. For example, choosing a higher deductible can lower your monthly rate.
