The Benefits of Health Insurance

Health insurance protects you and your loved ones if you get sick or injured. Insurance can also help keep you and your family healthy. If you have insurance, you’ll be able to get preventive care (like regular check-ups and screenings) so you and your family will be sick less often.

It also protects you financially: it protects you from having to pay large medical bills that you could incur by covering those bills, which is especially important if you have to miss work due to illness or injury.
