					To pay for the financial expenses that a sickness or injury may bring on,
it's important to have health insurance. What exactly is covered should
be dictated in the terms of the insurance policy. In the eyes of the law,
a health insurance policy is a contract. The premium is the price paid in
exchange for the agreement that the insurance company will pay for the
medical expenses of the person holding the policy. The cost of medicine,

a person.People buy individual plans to cover themselves. However, for
many people, their place of work offers insurance to them. The federal
and state governments have taken up providing insurance for disadvantaged
groups of people, like senior citizens, people on public assistance, and
the disabled. People most often have their health insurance through their
employer or covered by the government. However, there is a certain amount
of people who pay for their own insurance with individual plans.There are
several advantages to owning an individual plan. The insurance company
will pay for the costs of hospitalization, doctor fees, and other medical
expenses for policy holders. Proper care and proper treatment will come
easier to those with health insurance than those without. People who are
not eligible to receive public benefits will likely want their own health
insurance policy. In addition, their dependents will be able to use the
policy.There are upwards of 45 million individuals in America without
health coverage. Most are uninsured because the costs are too high. But
