Why Do You Need Health Insurance?

  • With the costs of medical care already high, a surgery, treatment for chronic care or even a multiple night hospital stay can lead to unmanageable financial hardship.
  • Having health coverage is directly linked to the ability to receive great healthcare. Unless you have infinite financial resources, a healthcare plan is the only option to have an option in your healthcare service provider and an opinion in the type of treatment you receive.
  • Analysis has demonstrated that individuals who are uninsured usually postpone getting care and increase the risk of worsening their condition before they finally see a doctor. The mortality rates for those without health insurance in Connecticut for cancer, diabetes and other serious health problems are higher than for those who have adequate health insurance.
