Why take out Health Insurance?

Whether you’re relatively healthy or chronically ill, health insurance can provide the financial protection you need from both routine and unexpected healthcare needs for you and your loved ones.

Health insurance typically covers preventive health services to keep you and your loved ones healthy and screen for potential health issues that could cause problems later in life.

Health insurance typically covers other essential health benefits like emergency services, prescription drugs and maternity care.

Health insurance can help protect you from high medical costs, whether expected or not, through co-payments.

If you choose to skip health insurance, you may be forced to face these costs alone. Protect both your health and financial well-being.

This is especially important for parents of young children or adults who would find it difficult to sustain their standard of living if they no longer had access to the income provided by their partner.

03 Insurance provides an opportunity for you to create an inheritance for your spouse and children by naming them as beneficiaries. This is a great way to set your children up for a solid financial future and provide for any monetary needs that will arise.
