We are living in the insurance capital of the world, yet most of us are not aware of how vital health insurance is. It is one of the most important investments we make. Illnesses, injuries, and other medical setbacks can be astronomically expensive if hospital visits or other serious measures are required. So maintaining the right health coverage is the only way to ensure we aren’t stuck coverings these costs out of pocket. This can only be possible if we understand how health insurance works.
But apart from a personal point of view, this is also one of the most important industries from a career perspective. It is one of the biggest and most vital industries in the USA. So, as future business leaders, we need to understand how this industry functions because it could also be a potential future employer for us, directly or indirectly.
