Health Maintenance organizations (HMOs)

Health insurance

Suppose you recently lost your health insurance coverage for any reason (including COVID-19) or had a significant life event such as marriage, relocation, or a new baby.

    Health Tips

    Achieving good health goes beyond just eating healthy and exercising, it requires a healthy lifestyle. Unfortunately, over 70 percent of American adults and 20 percent of our children are overweight or obese. Prioritizing your physical well-being is crucial to prevent health issues from starting and worsening.

    A healthy lifestyle entails making wise food and drink choices, exercising regularly, getting quality sleep, staying hydrated, managing stress, maintaining a positive mindset, quitting smoking, and scheduling regular medical check-ups. Here are some tips to help you transition to a healthier life: eat more vegetables, replace sugary drinks with water, practice meditation to reduce stress, and make exercise more enjoyable by doing it with a friend.

    Maintaining overall good health can help you reduce health costs, including the expenses of obtaining insurance to safeguard your health and life.

    Definitions of Health

    There are currently three types of health definitions in use. The first defines health as the absence of any disease or impairment. The second defines health as a state in which an individual can adequately cope with the demands of daily life, which also implies the absence of disease and impairment. The third definition states that health is a state of balance, an equilibrium that an individual has established between themselves and their social and physical environment.

    To promote healthier lives, it is important to develop a definition of health that works for everyone, across different segments of life. This means revising our definitions of health to account for the need for early and effective disease management. Disease management, rather than just the absence of disease, is an essential component of a healthy life. This is especially important for older adults, who require special attention and care to maintain their health.
