What are the benefits of health insurance?

Many of us would be unprepared to cover a health emergency if we had to pay for it. Emergency room visits can be extremely expensive, just as routine doctor visits can be. Health insurance helps cover some of the cost of healthcare. This is a benefit that is helpful to both the young and the old. However, there are additional benefits as well. 

What is Health Insurance?

Health insurance or medical insurance, like any other insurance, is designed to offset or alleviate some of the financial strain of medical costs. This type of insurance is designed to cover or pay for a partial amount of medical costs. In other words, health insurance helps you manage or control the cost of healthcare emergencies and routine doctor visits. Health insurance usually partially covers preventative healthcare, screenings, vaccines, and check-ups. Most health plans have a network of doctors you can choose from. You pay a deductible/partial fee to see an in-network doctor. However, if you opt to see a doctor who isn’t in your network, you may pay more or your care may not be covered by your insurance. This means that you may be required to pay the full cost of your doctor’s visit.
