Why Do You Need Health Insurance?

  • With medical costs already high and rising each year, medical bills and other expenses, hospital stays and surgeries can create serious debt.
  • Being insured in North Dakota is directly tied to access to excellent healthcare. Except for those with endless wealth, health insurance coverage is the only way to have an option in your medical service provider and a say in the type of care you get.
  • Side by side to those with health insurance, people who are uninsured commonly have higher mortality rates from heart disease, cancer and other similar serious diseases. This is because people without insurance usually wait to receive seeing a doctor until their condition worsens.
