WHAT IS THE MINIMUM AGE TO BUY A HEALTH INSURANCE?

Health insurance basically deals in coverage of medical and surgical expenses of an insured individual. It either reimburses the expenses incurred due to illness or injury or pays the care provider of the insured individual directly.

'A hospital bed is a parked taxi with the meter running.’ And this meter is definitely going to dig a huge hole in our pockets. Health insurance can save us from spending all of our savings and help us through our difficult times.
