Retirement Planning: Why Did We Choose Maxicare for our Health Insurance

Disclaimer: I am not affiliated with Maxicare Healthcare Corporation. The purpose of this article is to inform my readers of the importance of health insurance for financial security and over-all wellness, and why we chose Maxicare for our health insurance.

Nobody wants to get sick, but some people need medical attention- like a doctor’s check-up or laboratory examination.
While you are living a healthy lifestyle, with no history of family illness, you are still at risk of sickness.

But, people with health insurance will always have peace of mind, knowing that they can get the best medical treatment possible.

Benefits of Getting a Health Insurance

Financial Security

Hospitalization would cost us a huge amount of money. Worst, with limited cash, it will cost even our life, especially when medical problems lead to even more complicated health issues. 
By just paying a few thousand pesos monthly or quarterly, you are covered for hospitalization that would cost you a hundred thousand pesos, depending on your insurance coverage Click to Tweet.

Peace of Mind

Your health is at risk at any time. If it is not addressed immediately, it will  give you stress and will eventually worsen the situation. Your health insurance will shoulder the medical expenses and thus, reduce your stress.

Managed Health

Most health insurance covers regular doctor’s consultations and laboratory examinations. Availing of this minor hospital procedure facilitates early detection of serious illness. Hence, you are assured that it will be resolved and managed in time before it gets worse.

Why Did We Choose Maxicare?

Choosing the right health care insurance is difficult, especially if you are in your 50’s. 

Aside from the highest cost of premiums as compared to someone younger who is getting the same coverage, pre-existing health conditions are also not covered by most HMOs.
So, why did we choose Maxicare for our health insurance? There are five reasons.

4. Responsive Sales Agent

It is always good to have a nice and courteous sales agent who goes the extra mile to serve the client. We are lucky to have one. 

5. Affordable Premium Payment

Maxicare allows affordable premium payment every quarter, rather than paying them semi-annual or annually as most health insurance companies require. This arrangement will not take a big chunk from your budget, so your expenses are still manageable.
