Health Insurance News

Health insurance news is important to every American, so we have created a comprehensive, tailored daily digest on the topic. This Wiser email is delivered daily and contains the best health insurance articles on the web so that you can stay informed. Health insurance covers the medical and surgical expenses of its customers. It is a business model that spreads the cost of healthcare across a wide group of people and over a long period of time. The health care system in the United States is largely built on this model of private health insurance, although there are also substantial initiatives to provide health coverage for the elderly and others that do not have insurance. The industry is currently dealing with pressures including increased demand, partly fueled by an aging population. New and more expensive treatments and technologies are also putting a strain on prices, as is the increased use of diagnostic testing. Whether you are a healthcare professional, you work in the insurance industry, or you are simply concerned about your own plan, the daily health insurance news email from Wiser is your best source of information.
