What Type of Insurance Do I Need?

Types of Insurance

When you were a kid, your mom probably told you never to leave home without some Kleenex and enough change to make a phone call in case you got into trouble.  Back in the day, two dimes would do it, and maybe carrying an extra two dimes in case you fumbled and dropped the first pair and couldn’t find them.  Now most people carry a cell phone so carrying spare change is not a necessity, but the Kleenex…. well, that still makes sense today.

Just like being prepared with tissues or spare change for those daily little issues, having insurance policies in place will thwart most of life’s calamities and you will emerge from those times better for your preparedness.

If, however, you are a single subscriber because you are in business for yourself, or have lost your job and must obtain health insurance, there are wide range of options out there to choose from.  In the past, if you couldn’t afford it, you might have gone without health insurance, but, since the advent of the Affordable Care Act (“ACA”) or “ObamaCare”, it is the law that you must have health insurance in place or pay a fine.
