Why Do You Need Health Insurance?

  • With the costs of medical treatment already very high and constantly rising, a surgery, treatment for chronic care or even a short hospital stay can lead to serious financial hardship.
  • Having health insurance in Arizona is linked to access to quality medical care. Without limitless financial resources, a healthcare plan is the only option to have an option in your doctors and an opinion in the treatment you get.
  • Reports have indicated that those who do not have insurance often wait to receive medical attention and increase the liklihood of becoming more unhealthy before they ultimately see a doctor. The mortality rates for people without insurance for heart disease, cancer and other similar major health problems are greater than for people with health insurance.
