Do you know that the average American Life is 78.7 years? That is 944.4 months to spend of your life. If you are 35 today, you only have 524.4 months left to live. That number feels like a lot but is not very much when you consider that almost half your life is already gone. There is nothing we can do to change time that has passed, but we can prepare for the future.
If you are over the age of 35, all is not lost! It will be much more difficult to find affordable health insurance but stay vigilant. If you retain a healthy body and lifestyle, there will always be options to find.
The average person’s body will be at its peak function shortly before the age of 30. Our bodies will start to break down between ages 30-35. This means as we age past 35, affordable health insurance will be harder to find. Considering how many months we have already used up, it would be worth the expense to make sure our healthcare is secured, at a fair cost, for the remaining ones.
Most people keep putting off healthcare until they are injured, or their body is constantly in pain and breaking down. By this point it is too late to find any affordable healthcare because of the way healthcare providers run their business’. The older you are, the more likely it is that you will have higher and higher healthcare costs. In addition to higher costs, the older you get the more likely you are to have a major health problem that costs more than you have. When facing a monstrous medical crisis, the last thing we want on our minds is how to pay for it. Not having the right healthcare at the proper time will set you up for an unavoidable financial disaster.
Don’t waste it
If you are over the age of 35, the clock is winding down on your opportunity to reap the benefits of health insurance. We do not have many months left to make this lifesaving decision. It is imperative to start looking for, and getting, a healthcare plan if you are in or above the 30-35 age range. Do not be like most people and wait until you only have 164 months, on average, left to live (that’s only 65 years old).
