Embracing Health Insurance: The Entertainment Industry Perspective


No one plans to get sick or hurt, but most people need medical care at some point. Health insurance covers the high medical costs and protects an individual from very high expenses. Health insurance is a contract between an individual and an insurance company, whereby the individual buys a plan, under which the company agrees to pay part of his or her medical costs when he or she falls sick or gets hurt. One can never know when an accident may happen or a family member will get sick and need to see a doctor.
The cost of even routine care can quickly add up, but the cost of care for a major illness or injury can be devastating. At any age, and every level of personal health, health care costs are to be taken seriously. That is what health insurance is all about — covering the expenses that come with preventing illness and staying healthy, and being prepared for the worst that could happen. Health insurance provides you with an affordable way to get medical care when it is required.
The concept of health insurance is not particularly new to the society, however the complete ignorance and unawareness of it in the entertainment industry and invariably the society at large has led to the avoidable death of many entertainers resulting from terminal ailments. The sad fact is that many people who do not have health insurance simply don’t get the medical care they need. That’s because they may be worried about the cost. It may also be because they don’t have access to the best resources.
The Nigerian Entertainment Industry Health Insurance Convention seeks to research and guide entertainers in making good choices ahead of time, in order to save time and money down the road. People protect themselves and their families from financial losses when they purchase home or car insurance. The same goes for health insurance. One may not realize that a trip to the hospital can be much more costly than might be expected. Health insurance also guarantees access to a large network of doctors and hospitals, as well as other handy resources to help entertainers stay healthy. Other benefits include: Being able to quickly and easily find the help close to home, peace of mind and less stress during a tough time and, access to affordable care and health information.
The bottom line is health is the most valuable asset of all. With a good health insurance plan, you can protect the health and financial future for you and your family for a lifetime, especially with the new opportunities to get affordable insurance.
