This holiday season is a time of joy, celebration and giving. But in the midst of the holiday shopping, don’t forget to add health care coverage to your holiday check list.
Reasons why should you get health coverage:
- It’s the law: Not having health coverage could subject you to a penalty of 2.5% of your income or $695 per adult and $347.50 per child, whichever is higher. Obtain health coverage so you don’t have to pay the penalty.
- Protection from unexpected, high medical costs: An unexpected, serious accident or illness can send you spiraling into financial crisis. Protect your financial health by getting covered.
- Preventive care: Most health plans offer FREE preventive care, like health screenings, vaccines and some check-ups. Obtain these free services to prevent illness, disease, and other health-related problems.
Make your list, check it twice, and gift yourself with health coverage. Happy holidays!
