Hospital care only is health insurance coverage that pays for in-patient hospital expenses. Owning this protection can ensure that your bills for surgeries, as well as other charges associated with your stay, are taken care of.
One advantage is that you don't have to worry about paying for a separate policy this one will take care of your expenses as long as you're an in-patient. Another is that it allows you to avoid having to pay for health insurance coverage paying for small expenses if you don't have the finances to do so.
In some instances, Hospitalization only care may be a bad choice.
Hospitalization Only Disadvantages
Hospital care only health insurance coverage is not comprehensive. You will pay for any type of medical care outside of what you would receive if you are accepted as an in-patient in the hospital. While it may help to pay for a stay, it doesn't cover any other medical bills you may have.
While your bills are covered as an in-patient, if you need hospital care that requires you to be an out-patient, it’s not covered. Surgery performed out-patient along with x-rays, lab tests, surgery, doctors visits, will not be covered.
Before you take on hospital care only, you may want to make sure that it addresses your current financial and true medical needs. If not, there are plenty of health insurance offerings out there that are much more comprehensive for your needs, with much higher cost.
High-deductible plans encourage people to skimp on primary care, and putting off care can lead to more serious and costly health problems.
The conundrum of health insurance is that if you do not have it, or a policy that does not cover much, you can still be ruined financially. Medical bills can still ruin you if the policy is not comprehensive enough.
