How does private health insurance work in countries with national health plans?
Most other countries with universal coverage welcome, rely on, and may offer tax incentives for people to purchase private insurance in order to compliment the gaps of the national health plan.
Similar to what already has existed for many years in America, these supplemental private plans fill in for such things as copayments, deductibles, dental, vision, prescription drugs, and more.
A popular plan in America to help pay hospital out-of-pocket costs, is a hospital indemnity plan. These plans pay per day an amount based on how many days you choose, and at what amount you requested.
Critical illness policies offer a variety of plans, for example, to help with serious illnesses and Home Healthcare. Whether planning for long or short term care, these supplemental plans are quite customizable, very affordable, and comforting when needed.
