Health Insurance Association of America defines health insurance as "coverage that provides for the payments of benefits as a result of sickness or injury” as well as “insurance for losses from accident, medical expense, disability, or accidental death and dismemberment." It is broken up into two main categories: Fee-for-Service and Managed Cared. Although both plans are not entirely like the other, they both can cover areas such as medical, surgical and hospital expenses as well as prescription drug and dental coverage.
As people, we are susceptible to accidents and illness whether we like it or not. Although it would be nice to plan for such instances, that is not always possible. When or if that moment comes and you find yourself without health insurance, you might be facing serious consequences on top of your pre-existing issues. However, with health insurance to help you, you don’t have to have any more added stress and can instead feel relaxed knowing you will be taken care of.
