While we get that you do not have health insurance because you feel you cannot afford it, the better questions are: Can you afford to lose everything you have ever worked for? Can you afford to lose your house? Your car? Your health? Can you afford to pay a medical bill that amounts to about two- to three-years salary?
If you answer “no” to any of those questions, then it’s time to get health insurance, no matter what else you may have to do without. You cannot do without your health. You cannot do with a house, which you may lose if you don’t pay medical bills you racked up when you broke your leg, or sustained some other kind of serious injury requiring medical care. You cannot afford to be without health insurance. Your health is the whole key to living your life the way you want to live it.
If your house, car and boat are insured, then why aren’t you?
