Make Sure Insurance is Part of Your Routine
You put in the miles, you eat right. Running makes you feel like a superhero. But don’t let your endorphin high fool you – you can still get hurt. From Runner’s knee and plantar fasciitis to the less common falling off a treadmill, injuries happen. And when they do, they can have a big impact on your training and your wallet. Hospital bills, specialists, physical therapy – costs can rack up faster than the miles if you don’t have health insurance. So if you want to make sure you can afford that next race entry or the latest gear, or more importantly (yes there are more important things than running), to pay your bills, make sure health insurance is part of your routine. So take a moment to step away from your favorite running blog and check out the Health Insurance Marketplace.
What is the Marketplace? It’s a new way for those without insurance to find health care coverage that fits their budgets and their needs. Individuals can compare prices, benefits and other important features before making a choice. One application, one time, provides the opportunity to review every qualified insurance plan in the area, along with how to get lower costs on monthly premiums and out-of-pocket expenses. Enrollment runs through March 31, 2014.
