The importance of health insurance

Turkey has a very complex health care system because of the existence of different plans and departments involved in this sector. All health care and related social welfare activities are coordinated by  the Ministry of Health. Article 60 of the Turkish Constitution quotes: “Every individual is entitled to have social security. The State takes the necessary measures to create this confidence and organization.
Having health insurance is more important than many people realize. We all know that our health is our most valuable asset and the tragedy of illness or injury should not be compounded by not having a proper health care.
So why do you need to have health insurance? What is the benefit of having health insurance?

First of all, you should know that you can get medical help without coverage. But guess what? If you do not have health insurance you are going to be responsible for paying everything on your own. Obviously, that is not something that you want to do. As you can imagine, medical bills can add up in a hurry if something major were to happen to you.
Additionally, when you have good health insurance you are much more likely to go to the doctor when feeling bad. In turn, you will have a better chance of staying healthy. You may be able to get away with not going to the doctor, but catching some illnesses early on is the key to beating them.
Overall, health insurance is very important no matter what. Even if you have to buy your own policy, you should consider doing so.
Generally speaking, both people with and without coverage take health insurance for granted. Do yourself a favor and make sure that you never fall into this level of thinking. No matter who you are, it is very important that you always have some sort of health insurance coverage.
