  • Say cheers to good health with temporary health insurance

    Filed Under: Blogging

Will you be welcoming the idea of restricting the serving size of soda at restaurants? Well, this has been introduced in New York state by the Mayor, Michael Bloomberg. There are also ban on large servings of other sugary drinks. The intention behind this move is to control the problem of increasing obese population. Obesity brings with it a crowd of diseases and disorders. If you are on the obese side, but has not yet encountered any serious health issues, it means you have been lucky so far. In any case, you should be prepared for any kind of health issues. Ensure that you have some health coverage. If not, avail a temporary health insurance.

The restriction on serving size has angered some people as they feel that they have every right to choose what they want and what they do not.However this restriction is applicable only in restaurants, delis, sports arenas and movie theatres. And they can order another cup of drink if they want. The idea behind this is if we buy a larger serving, the tendency is to finish the cup though you do not really desire to. This makes the urge to drink more controllable. This ban is expected to get approved by Board of Health and will soon pick up in other states too.

The ban is applicable only to sweetened drinks with more calories. It will not be applicable to diet soda or any drink that has half milk or a milk substitute.Everyone should understand that this is being done for our good health. Becoming obese will only lead to diabetes, high blood pressure, heart diseases etc. Any new move will initially face opposition but will eventually be accepted.

Meanwhile amidst all of this, obese people should concentrate on how they can reduce their weight. They should also fight against any health problems with a proper health insurance. If there is no health coverage available, they should think of getting atleast a temporary health insurance until they decide upon a long term one. The temporary health insurance covers all unexpected injuries or illnesses. However the pre-existing diseases or disorders are not covered. The coverage is given for hospitalization, lab tests, clinic visits, organ transplantation and repatriation.
