Are you doing a staycation? You know, when you’re taking vacation but actually staying home.
Many people do this as certain costs can be pricey specially with a large family.

Why do I need health insurance?
Many people might have a misconception that health insurance is just to go see a doctor and get some blood work done. Well, let’s look at things a bit differently.

With co-pays, deductibles and out-of-pocket maximums you can manage your health care at more affordable rates than just winging it and knocking on wood that nothing happens.
That’s not a plan.
