Catastrophic major medical insurance can be very important for people who are in a major accident or develop a major illness. This coverage, in addition to normal health coverage, does not cover all expenses. It is very important for consumers to read all the terms of service when shopping around for catastrophic medical insurance. Before even starting the hunt for such coverage, consumers need to have a full understanding of what their regular medical coverage will cover. This will help them determine where the 'holes' are in the regular coverage. These 'holes' should be covered with catastrophic major medical insurance. Not everything will be covered, but consumers should make sure the major things like hospital stays, medical treatments, and emergency services are covered with the plan.
As with deciding on any type of policy, the policyholder needs to make sure and fully understand all the terms in the coverage. A representative with the insurer can answer any questions or explain any stipulations of the policy. The last thing anyone wants to do is have to pay big bills. It might even be a good idea to involve a third party in their decision. This person will be familiar with catastrophic medical insurance while keeping their best interest at heart.
Deciding to have such a policy should be a decision that is well thought out. The cost can be high for catastrophic medical insurance, but if the policy holder doesn't have it and needs it, the costs will be higher. It is a personal financial choice that needs to be reflected upon. Having a full understanding of the risks involved if one doesn't have catastrophic major medical insurance should not be the most important deciding factor. If the consumer cannot continue to live a comfortable lifestyle because they have to pay for the coverage, then they need to either reassess their whole budget or reassess the need for catastrophic medical insurance.
God calls us to be wise with our earthly possessions and wealth. This is His test to us of whether we are worthy for heaven. This is not to say that if one makes some mistakes God won't accept them. After all, God is the one "Who forgiveth all thine iniquities; who healeth all thy diseases" (Psalm 103:3). He does give lots of advice and sets specific financial rules in the Bible. Taking time to look over these principles should help anyone make a decision concerning catastrophic major medical insurance.
