Health insurance is a contract between an insured person and an insurance company wherein the latter pledges to release a sum of money to the former in the event of the occurrence of one, several, or all of the following medical events:
The release of the money by the insurance company shall be in exchange for the insured person's periodic payment of regular premiums.
Why is Health Insurance Important for Filipinos?
Findings from a recent study made by top insurance firm Sun Life of Canada showed that a majority of Filipinos cited medical emergencies - either their own or someone else's they know - served as CRITICAL TURNING POINTS in their lives.
It found out that 95 out of every 100 Filipinos who get sick will sacrifice their savings. More than 50% said they will borrow from family members just to get through these illness-related tough times.
That is how potent medical and health-related crises can be in potentially DIMINISHING and even DEVASTATING a family's financial resources. And you would not want to be in that situation.
This is why the importance of getting health insurance while one is still healthy cannot be overemphasized.
The Benefits of Getting Health Insurance
It is thus a sound, even wise financial planning practice for Filipinos to prepare for health-related emergencies while at the prime of productivity and at the optimum level of health.
You owe it to your family to prepare for ailments, illnesses and accidents well ahead of time. Why? Because expenses for treating all medical emergencies cannot come at the expense of the happiness, well-being, security and contentment of your family.
