FAQ - Basic Health Insurance

Basic health insurance is difficult to define.

For many people, basic health insurance simply means emergency care coverage and natal care. For others, basic health insurance might mean primary health care coverage minus dental care and eye care. The important thing is to carry as much health insurance as possible. You should make sure that you take advantage of any health insurance you employer offers. In most cases, insurance approaches through a group plan will be less costly than that purchased as an individual. If your employer’s plan does not provide enough coverage for your needs you should consider purchasing supplemental coverage. Basic health insurance should be tailored to your age, your lifestyle and your family’s needs. This information is general in nature and should not substitute for the advice of an expert in the field.
