Navigating health insurance can be tough. A 2019 survey found more than 85% of Americans don’t know the basic benefits that health insurance plans must cover under the Affordable Care Act. Millions of Americans admit they don’t know the basic terminology of health insurance, like how to define copay or premium.
But the benefits of having health insurance are immense
Health insurance is a mechanism to protect you financially in the event you’re seriously hurt or become ill. For example, if you were to break your leg, the treatment needed would cost you upward of $7,500. Health insurance kicks in to cover the bills and shield you from high, unexpected costs.
Health insurance is also a path to keeping you well. Many policies cover preventative services like immunizations, shots, and screenings. Often these services are provided at no cost, as insurance companies foot the bill. Taking advantage of the recommended, preventive services is an important step toward long-term good health and well-being.
Sometimes people avoid searching for health insurance coverage because the process can be intimidating, and others don’t realize they qualify for coverage at discounted rates under the Affordable Care Act. In fact, coverage eligibility has been expanded this year amid the pandemic. Costs have also been lowered.
