In brief: Some questions for U
Questions to ponder: in the event of a life-threatening accident, or a grave and unexpected illness, how would you and your family pay for the care you need? These costs can be hundreds of thousands of $, and easily bankrupt a family.
Also, are you independently able to pay for preventive doctor visits now, while you are young and healthy -- so that potential illnesses are avoided as you age?
