Health Insurance, Can You Afford Not To Have It?

Health care is on the minds of every American today and the reason for this is Obamacare. Under current regulations, everyone is required to sign up for a health insurance plan by March 31st of 2014 or face a penalty. The penalty itself is rather inexpensive for most, but it may not be a better idea to pay the penalty over getting health insurance for yourself and your family.

Medical care is very expensive and the United States has the most expensive health care costs in the world. If you don’t have health insurance, this overly expensive health care could mean financial ruin for you if something bad happened to your family. An exorbitant health care bill could lead to bankruptcy if you are not able to afford it. Having proper health insurance could help alleviate these expenses and make medical bills much more bearable.

Everyone gets sick from time to time and eventually you will need to visit your doctor. Everything from a common cold to an accident can cause you or a member of your family to need medical treatment. Out of pocket expenses are high enough; not having health insurance to cover a portion of your care could be devastating.

Reducing Your Health Insurance Costs

Buying health insurance is like buying car insurance; if you are a good driver, you might wonder why you need it. The same is true for someone who rarely gets sick, why buy health insurance if you are already healthy? Whether you like the idea or not, you still have to purchase health insurance and there is nothing you can do about it. There is something you can do about the price you pay for insurance.

Just as with your auto insurance, you are able to purchase many different health insurance plans that offer a wide array of options and features. You can also find a plan that offers a high deductible which will save you money on your monthly premiums. You can even use a Health Savings Account and receive a tax deduction while you save for those unexpected out-of-pocket costs.

Let’ say that you don’t currently have health insurance coverage; you might qualify to purchase your health insurance in one of the exchanges and receive a subsidy. The exchanges have many different levels of health insurance and there is one that is sure to suit your needs and your budget. Before you do anything, make sure to do your research and know how much it will cost to not have health insurance coverage. It may be more than you think.
