Life and Health Insurance
Accidents and illnesses can happen unexpectedly and lead to serious health problems. Whether circumstances leave you fighting for your life or with a long recovery road ahead, if something happens to you, it’s critical to have proper insurance coverage to take care of yourself and your loved ones.
What Is Health Insurance?
Health insurance is an essential coverage that can help you access doctors and hospitals, and pay for medical expenses, such as prescriptions, treatments and preventive care. There are many different options when it comes to health insurance plans, such as the following:
- Group health
- Long-term care (LTC)
- Medical spending accounts (e.g., health savings accounts, flexible spending accounts and health reimbursement arrangements)
Health insurance plans can be adjusted or augmented to take into account your budget and medical needs.
What Is Life Insurance?
In the event of your death, life insurance can assist survivors with various expenses. This coverage provides a predetermined sum of money to the policy’s beneficiary, which may be essential for keeping your family and loved ones afloat financially after your death.
The two most common types of life insurance are:
- Term life insurance—This kind of policy only provides coverage temporarily. Your insurance will include protection during a specific period and will be paid out if your death occurs during that time.
- Permanent life insurance—This coverage remains active throughout your life and will pay out the full amount as long as you continue to pay your premiums. In addition, these policies accumulate cash value, meaning it may be able to provide a gradual source of income to the beneficiary.
While term and permanent life insurance are the most common policies, there are others that our agency can help you explore.
