Impacts of health financing
We cannot eliminate sickness and ill health as they are important biological indicators of the internal state of our bodies. But one major thing that worsens a health condition is the lack of finance to get the appropriate care. Healthcare is expensive; hence when most people fall ill, they worry first about how much health will cost, then they worry if they will get the right help, they need.
Barring any major illness or life-threatening situation, many families with average income and good savings can live happily. However, it takes one major illness to wipe out savings. Most families spend up to 50% of their yearly income on out-of-pocket medication. So how can we ensure that our families and we are healthy and happy?
To continuously reduce the menace of illness and increase happiness, health plans can play an essential role in improving access to healthcare services at affordable prices, thereby improving health outcomes, prolonging lives, and creating a healthy, happier population.
Healthcare plans create the assurance of tackling ill health with standard medical practitioners and enough financial support that does not impact any other aspect of life. Many companies now realize the importance of subscribing to a healthcare plan for their employees to alleviate this problem further. The cost of subscribing to a company-wide health plan is significantly lower than the cost of productivity lost due to sickness and ill health. In some countries, it is compulsory to have one.
