Leading a happy life, involves good planning and analysis for your personal health. Accidents do happen and you need to be prepared for such situations. In times of high health cost, you need to get covered for health risks. For the rich as well as poor, male as well as female and young as well a sold, being diagnosed with an illness and having the need to be hospitalized can be a tough ordeal. Heart problems, diabetes, stroke, renal failure, cancer the list of lifestyle diseases just seem to get longer and more common these days. Thankfully there are more specialist hospitals and specialist doctors but all that comes at a cost. The super rich can afford such costs, but what about an average middle class person? For an illness that requires hospitalization/ surgery, costs can easily run into five digit bills.
