    Especially for women, we may face different health issues at different stages of our lives. From the age of 20, they may be exposed to gynecological diseases. When they start to form a family, they may have worries about pregnancy, and deadly dangerous diseases such as cervical cancer and breast cancer. According to Cancer.net, an estimated 341,831 women died from cervical cancer worldwide in 2020. And from the American Cancer Society, we know that Breast cancer is the 2nd leading cause of cancer death in women after Lung Cancer.

    Sadly, some of us don’t even have the required emergency fund during a medical emergency. Here comes the role of medical insurance which covers our medical expenses like hospital bills, doctor’s consultation charges and other medical charges etc.
