My parents are not getting any younger and as time passes by, the pressure to provide them with health insurance is building up on me. Actually, it’s not just them who need it. We all do. Right now, we only have PhilHealth to depend on in case we get sick. That’s why I”m looking for cheap but comprehensive health insurance for all of us. Is there such as thing as cheap but comprehensive health insurance? I hope so.
Speaking of health insurance, I wonder if our OFWs have one. I mean, it’s not easy getting sick in a foreign land, away from your loved ones who could provide you the care you need. While getting sick can be prevented through exercise and eating healthily, getting caught in an accident while working abroad isn’t. Accidents happen without prior notice. Which makes health insurance of the good kind a must for them.
Our family is just lucky we’re a healthy bunch. None of us have been inflicted with a serious sickness yet. We only get to have the seasonal cold, cough, fever and flu. I hope it continues for a long, long time. But still, I know we should get ourselves health insurance soon, just to be sure.
