Health insurance - where to get coverage

Why should I get health insurance in the first place?
The price of health care is increasingly going up. The cost of a visit to the emergency room, or even the cost of a simple visit to the doctor's office, can be overwhelming for average families who are uninsured. The prices of prescription drugs are going up. Many people, in fact, are simply choosing to go without them. They're choosing to pay the electric bill and keep food on the table and in the meantime just stay sick. Health insurance can save you thousands and thousands of dollars in the long run, bring you peace of mind, and, perhaps most importantly, bring you really good health care when you need it most.

What if I can't afford health insurance?
The simple truth is, you can't afford not to have health insurance. Obviously, when it comes to the big things, such as car accidents and broken bones, an uninsured hospital stay will clean out your bank account and put you in deep debt for years, perhaps the rest of your life. These big things, these big accidents, are what people think most of when they think of getting health insurance. But these incidents are relatively rare. Where life insurance comes in especially handy is in the small things, the little ones. Visits to the doctor, flu shots, strep throat, even a really bad cold - the costs of these everyday experiences can add up and take a devastating financial toll. No matter which way you look at it, health insurance is a must.
Where do I go to get health insurance coverage?
Many times your place of work or (if you're a college student) your school will offer a health insurance plan. This is a good place to start. Find out about the plan and what you need to do to qualify for it. Remember, a relatively small monthly payment is to be preferred to a relatively large and unexpected one. Another place to find life insurance coverage, if your work or school doesn't offer it, is online. In our world, everything is available online, and the internet is rapidly becoming one of the best places (if not the best place, period) to locate health insurance coverage that can be uniquely arranged to fit your unique needs.
Where do I go online to find health insurance coverage?
A quick search will usually get you started. Just do a search of "health insurance," and immediately thousands of sites will spring up. The trick is to know where to go to find the best ones, the best coverage, the best prices. Luckily, lots of people with lots of know-how have done much of the work for you already. Health insurance experts have gone through the different companies, searched them out, rated them high or low, and put this information online for your benefit. You want to go with a high rated insurance company; you want to find the best health insurance coverage possible. When it comes to your health, nothing is too good. Single rates will obviously be different from and cheaper than family rates, but more and more insurance companies are trying to create insurance packages that will really benefit a family without crippling it financially.
What should I watch out for when shopping for insurance online?
What you need to watch out for are scam artists who are out to steal your dollar. You want to go with a solid, trusted name. If something sounds too good to be true, it probably is. Don't go with someone just because they promise very, very low rates. It's too easy to have someone take your money, think you're covered, get injured, and then find out the hard way that you've been scammed.
