Health insurance is an agreement between you and your insurer, where you agree to pay a certain amount of money to the insurer (known as the monthly premium or fee), and in turn the insurer agrees to help pay for your medical bills, as well as prescribed medications, when you need medical care.These medicals bills can be for numerous types of medical care, like doctor visits, diagnostic tests, hospitalization, or prescription medications, contingent upon the type of health insurance policy you have.
The health insurance policy dictates what you portion you will pay and what the portion the insurance company will pay whenever you require healthcare services.
