Health insurance is a good way to help you manage your health care costs. You pay health care companies premiums – a set amount of money each month – and you get benefits to pay for your eligible health care expenses. This can include regular doctor checkups or injuries to treatment for long-term illnesses.
Why should I have health insurance?

Staying healthy. Many preventive care services – like checkups - are covered at 100%.
