2 de marzo de 2018
Health insurance might seem like it’s only useful for older people or those with serious health issues. But signing up for a health plan is a smart move even if you’re the picture of perfect health. This infographic explains why being insured is important – even for healthy people.

Protection From Expensive Bills and Penalties

Without health insurance, you’re just one accident away from a financial disaster where you’re responsible for the full cost of your care:

  • Fall playing basketball? A broken leg can cost $7,500 to treat.
  • Land in the hospital after a car accident? A three-day stay could set you back $30,000.
  • Which is greater: 2.5 percent of your household income or $695? That’s the penalty you’ll pay each year if you don’t have health insurance.

Being covered means you won’t have to skip a doctor visit or be worried about costs if you have an accident or serious illness.

Help Keep Yourself Healthy

You’re healthy now, and signing up for a health plan can help you stay that way by giving you access to preventive services and annual checkups, including:

  • Mamografías
  • Vaccinations
  • Exámenes de rutina generales
  • Vacunas contra la influenza
  • Colonoscopies
  • Prostate cancer screenings
  • Blood pressure and cholesterol checks
