Health Insurance for
Children with Cerebral Palsy
High-quality health care affects health and wellness. A health insurance policy is a contract between an insurance company and a policy holder intended to safeguard against high and unexpected health care costs. Health insurance is a benefit provided through a government agency, private business, or non-profit organization.
Although policy-holders pay a monthly premium, co-payments, co-insurance, and deductibles, it is expected that the total is far less than that required if paid fully out-of-pocket.
Finding affordable health insurance for children with long-term medical conditions, such as cerebral palsy, can be a major concern for most parents.
Reform and mandates are continually changing the health insurance industry, and plan coverage seems to change yearly. Prescription coverage and dental insurance are not always available. And, in today’s economic times not everybody can afford coverage. Yet, coverage is essential and good plans aren’t always easy to obtain.
