You protect yourself and your family from financial losses when you purchase home or car insurance. The same goes for health insurance
. And, what you may not realize is that a trip to the hospital can be much more costly than you might expect. Here are some facts:
- The average cost of a trip to the emergency room for an adult is about $700,
not including any tests or hospitalization, which may increase the bill to well over $1,000.
- A broken leg can cost up to $7,500.
- Average expenses for childbirth are up to $8,800,
and well over $10,000 for c-section delivery.
- The total cost of a hip replacement can run a whopping $32,000.
These examples sound scary, but the good news is that, with the right plan, you can protect yourself from most of these and other types of medical bills.
