This is what I love about working in a call center industry – they provide top-of-the-line health card for you and your dependents to compensate for any illness.
Just last week, my friend’s dad had undergone prostate surgery at St. Luke’s. The doctor’s fee plus the meds, and all other miscellaneous fees were quite expensive, it almost reached to 250K, but the medical insurance got everything covered. They only cashed out 62 pesos!
I know that some private companies don’t provide the same benefits.
Imagine yourself in the same situation, without any health card? Where in the world will you get that amount of money?! This is why medical insurance is important because if you and your dependents are not covered, the high cost of medical bills will be solely your responsibility.
If your company doesn’t provide a Medicare supplement for you, now is the best time to think about getting one for yourself and your family! There are many health care providers available on the internet. They offer different types of health benefit plans for you that will fit your needs and budget. Just one reminder, when choosing the right benefit plan, make sure you know your family’s health history first. If illness such as cancer, diabetes, hypertension etc. run in your family, it is important to make sure your insurance plan covers the following:
I say this often, let’s all be healthy and fabulous this 2010 and the years to come!
