Why do I need health insurance?

Why_Do_I_Need_Health_Insurance_315xYou buy insurance for your home, your car, maybe even your cell phone. Why not for your health? If something happens to you, you leave yourself vulnerable to large medical bills. No one plans to get sick or hurt. But no one should go broke — or even bankrupt — because of an injury or illness.

Even if you’re healthy now, family history with things like high blood pressure, diabetes, or cancer can make you vulnerable to expensive health care needs. Having quality health insurance gives you protection from the unexpected.

Fortunately, the Health Insurance Marketplace makes health insurance easier to understand and purchase. You can be sure that you have coverage that’s there whenever you need it. And millions can get help paying for their insurance. Click here to see what you might qualify for using our calculator.
