The Cost Of Not Having Health Insurance

Posted on July 4th, 2012 by Author

Cutting down on expenses is not always the practical thing to do; especially when it comes to dealing with health related issues you or your family may develop. Remember that age old saying “prevention is better than cure?” But sometimes it is too late to prevent health-related issues, and when that happens, all we can do is try to find a solution.

Paying medical bills can be a costly and stressful activity during the time of illness. Even if you do have money put aside for times like these, the cost of paying medical bills usually always outweighs the savings. If prevention is the way to go then there is no better way to avoid this from happening, than to ensure you and your loved ones are fully covered.  Health insurance can protect not only your finances but also your physical, emotional and mental health.

You can only avoid sickness for so long, with most, if not all of us, having to be hospitalised at some point. By having high quality health insurance cover, you can rest easy knowing that you will be able to receive the quality health services you want for you and your family, without it impacting on your financial situation.

NIB offers great health insurance coverage to suit every individual’s needs and budget. From singles to families, from overseas students to Australian residents, for those wanting the full hospital and extras cover, to those just looking for dental and optical. Paying another monthly bill might seem impossible right now, but consider what would happen if you or your family did need medical attention; good health and safety for your family is not something you can put a price tag on.
