BestHealthcareRates.com's Affordable Medical Care Allows Americans to Avoid Further Financial Hardship in Tight Economy

ARROYO GRANDE, CA--(Marketwire - April 28, 2009) - Living through difficult economic times, many Americans are struggling to make ends meet, some going without medical insurance coverage in an effort to save money, according to representatives of BestHealthcareRates.com. Financial experts are encouraging families to cut costs in other areas of their budgets in order to have the funds to purchase affordable medical insurance coverage, potentially protecting them from further financial hardship in the future.

With nearly 50 million uninsured Americans and medical costs continuing to rise faster than incomes, there is a domino effect of financial struggles for many citizens needing medical care. However, financial experts and medical insurance experts agree that the answer is securing affordable medical insurance coverage.

Because a single illness or injury without medical insurance could mean significant financial hardship or even bankruptcy, families are protecting their financial futures by making an effort to find medical insurance coverage that fits their budgets. Insurance shoppers can choose from a range of plans with different levels of deductibles and copays, from HMO to PPO plans and from basic to comprehensive medical insurance plans. A variety of different insurance policies gives the consumer an opportunity to compare and contrast plans in order to find the best health care coverage to meet their individual medical and financial needs.

"It is definitely possible to find an affordable medical insurance plan, even during difficult economic times. Every person's financial and medical situations are different, so it is wise to compare various insurance plans to find the right one to meet both medical needs and budget constraints," said Tom Carolan, Director of Client Services with BestHealthcareRates.com. "Taking a proactive approach regarding your medical insurance needs today will provide you with increased financial security and peace of mind for the future."
