There are several reasons why someone might want to consider having a health insurance plan in addition to any coverage they may receive through their employer:
- Job insecurity: If you are concerned about job security, you may want to have your own health insurance plan as a backup in case you lose your job and the coverage that comes with it.
- Limited employer coverage: Some employer-provided health insurance plans have limited coverage or high deductibles, which could leave you exposed to significant out-of-pocket costs in the event of a serious illness or injury. Having a separate insurance plan can help cover these costs.
- Pre-existing conditions: Some employer-provided health insurance plans exclude coverage for pre-existing conditions, or have a waiting period before such conditions are covered. Having your own insurance plan can help ensure that you have coverage for pre-existing conditions.
- Life changes: If you experience a major life change, such as getting married, having a child, or moving to a new state, your employer-provided health insurance may no longer be the best fit for your needs. Having your own insurance plan can give you more flexibility to choose a plan that meets your changing needs.
- Cost: Depending on your circumstances, you may find that purchasing your own health insurance plan is more cost-effective than relying on employer-provided coverage. This can be especially true if you are self-employed or do not have access to employer-provided coverage.
