Health insurance pays for certain medical expenses like doctors’ visits and hospital stays. It may be provided through a government-sponsored program or a private company. When you face a serious illness, insurance can protect you from huge medical bills that may exhaust your savings and threaten your financial independence.
 
Understanding your health insurance plan and what it covers helps you plan ahead for out-of-pocket expenses and get the most coverage possible for the tests, treatments and procedures you need.
