It Can Lead to Hurt Feelings
Employees appreciate health insurance. They are grateful when their employer provides coverage to handle medical costs. Nevertheless, there is the deductible to worry about. Modern deductibles are as high as $5000 or more. These impact on financial wellness. It can be difficult to pay a deductible when you are already cash-strapped. Some people will borrow the money to pay the deductible. They will ask family and friends to help. This gets old quickly.
Parents are willing to offer assistance, but they have their own problems, and the same is true for friends. A person ends up owing money to those closest to him or her, creating bad feelings which can last for years. It is better to be able to budget sensibly. There are employees you don’t know much about budgeting and could use some advice. Countrywide Pre-Paid Legal Services is here to help out.
