When you are young and healthy, it is all too easy to gloss over the details of your health insurance. This is especially the case if you take care of yourself and have a small budget, which often equates to convincing yourself that you don’t need in-depth health insurance. Well, you may be wrong, and whatever shape you are in now, you can be fairly certain that this state of perfection won’t last forever.
There are two important elements to consider when finding the right personal health insurance: your projected health concerns and your budget. Instead of panicking about ObamaCare and signing up for the cheapest plan possible, use the opportunity to do your research and come out on top. Figure out your family’s health history so that you can pay for coverage that makes sense, instead of non-specific blanket coverage.
As for your budget, the younger and healthier you are, the more you can do with it. Insurance is a bet, after all: the less likely you are to need it, the less you have to pay for it. Of course, there is a wide variety of insurance plans so don’t be fooled into thinking that you need to spend more than is necessary. There are also subsidy options available, such as medical tax credits, that could lower your monthly payments. State programs and Medicaid are two other options for lowering payments, depending on your income and health.
Getting health coverage while younger and more physically fit is more affordable in the long run than trying to backtrack and find insurance when you are already aging and in need of care. It’s as simple as that. If you are 30 and healthy, everyone wants to insure you; when you are 50 and diabetic, you’ve already missed the chance to insure against your illness.
