Do Healthy People Need Health Insurance?

If you’re like me, you avoid traditional medicine at all costs. From home remedies to supplements and essential oils, I have a holistic way of staying healthy. I do my best to lead an active life and go to the gym about 3-4 times a week. I don’t take any medications and I’ve never had any major surgeries or medical conditions. So why does someone like me have health insurance? 

About 7 years ago I tore my ACL. I wasn’t doing anything crazy, just playing in the playground with some super cute kids. I misjudged the ground and when I landed I heard a loud pop from my knee. The pain was manageable at first but once the adrenaline wore off I was in so much pain that I wanted to vomit. What was equally nauseating was the bill I would’ve had to pay without insurance – $30,000!!!

Luckily, I was able to do a stem cell injection to get my knee back to normal but I learned a big lesson – Insurance is not a nice to have, it’s an absolutely essential tool to preserve your hard earned savings. Having health insurance ensures that you can access the care you need without worrying about the financial burden.

In addition to financial security, health insurance promotes overall well-being by encouraging regular check-ups, preventive screenings, and timely medical interventions. By addressing health concerns early and managing chronic conditions effectively, health insurance helps individuals lead healthier, more productive lives.
