Health Insurance for Creative Artists -- A Multi-Talented Health Investment
For the Creative Artist -- Good Health Insurance is Truly
a Lifetime Investment
Fellow artists, buying good health insurance is the best investment you can make in your lifetime! You can purchase fine jewelry, art works, vintage cars -- but none of these can assure you the value, well-being, and peace of mind that a comprehensive health insurance plan will bring you. And you don't have to pay for expensive expert advice before buying, either. For, no knowledgeable jeweler, fine art dealer or professional car salesman can begin to give you the self assurance and cool confidence that a good health insurance package affords you.
Modern Health Insurance Covers More Than You Think
At one time, health insurance coverage was at minimum basic level. Most major illnesses and surgery were covered, but that was about all. Any condition out of the ordinary or slightly obscure was dismissed as not suitable for health insurance coverage. And any medical problem or type of surgery that sounded the least bit "cosmetic", you might as well just forget about. -- No coverage would be granted, and you'd be made to feel you were foolish even to ask for it! In today's health insurance market, however, there are policies that cover just about any medical condition, even pre-existing ones. And we all can benefit from this reassurance, especially as we get a year or two older. And there is better and better coverage for dependents now, so you can relax knowing your spouse and children will be well taken care of whenever health problems arise. Just imagine -- you may soon be able to include your pet poodle or parrot on your updated health insurance policy! (And, how about adopting a couple of those cute stray cats, dogs or hedgehogs for inclusion in your health care coverage?)
Pay Nothing Or Little For Office Visits -- Let Health Insurance Take Care Of The Rest
Many health insurance policies require little or no payment up front for medical office visits or prescription drugs. At most, you may owe a $10 or $15 co-pay along with your health insurance identification card for all your doctors' appointments -- including specialists. And in some instances, even the co-pay can be billed for later payment. So, there's never a need to worry that you won't be able to afford your doctor's fee.
Buy Prescription Drugs For Nearly Nothing -- Your Health Insurance Plan Will Pick Up The Balance
You won't have to fret about pharmacy fees, for with current-day health insurance, most prescriptions cost a mere fraction of their worth. And you can go home feeling well cared for and wealthy. And generic drugs cost even less than their brand names do -- even more savings from your health insurance "investment fund."
And There Is Even Holistic Or Alternative Health Insurance
Can you believe it -- there is finally health coverage for many holistic and alternative health treatments to make your insurance wants and needs complete. Even herbal cures and natural health massage are included, in many cases! So, artists all, call your nearest health insurance broker today, and make that guaranteed investment of your lifetime!
