No one plans to get sick or hurt, but we all need to get treated at some point for an illness or injury, and health insurance helps pay these costs. Health insurance provides the security of knowing that you can get medical care when you need it. You can also get free preventive services, including cholesterol and diabetes screenings, to help you stay healthy and maintain your active lifestyle. Health insurance also help you avoid very high medical bills that could threaten your financial future. Medical bills are the top cause of personal bankruptcies. In Colorado, the average cost of a knee replacement is over $23,000 and the national average cost of a 3-day hospital stay is $30,000. Why worry about your health and finances? Get covered.
