In recent years, more and more Romanians have changed their consumer behavior in terms of medical services. The trend is starting to shift more and more from a behavior of treating diseases after they have become manifestations to a behavior of prevention.
The health insurance industry, but also that of private medical services, is experiencing a significant boom precisely due to the change of perspective. Even though the level of health education is still low in Romania compared to the rest of the EU countries, the active members of society, in particular those in big cities, align their expectations and behavioral habits with those in the West. Thus, prevention has become an important issue for a significant category of the population.
Through private health insurance, they benefit from medical services at the highest standards, both in the country and abroad, benefiting from a network of over 425.000 clinics or hospitals, such as the one made available through our insurances. They also cover the costs of preventive medicine, thus becoming a very important modern tool in maintaining the best possible health status. Any condition detected at an early stage is treated much more easily, and the chances of leaving long-term marks on the patient's health decrease significantly.
For these reasons, in exceptional situations such as during this period, when the COVID-19 pandemic forces people to take extremely serious measures to avoid becoming ill, a good general state of health can make the difference between contacting the virus or not. Also, even in the case of infection, a person who constantly takes care of their health is more likely to easily overcome this challenge than one who does not practice prevention.
The best way to treat a medical problem and take refuge from such unexpected situations is to keep your health under constant surveillance. To achieve this, it is very important for a person to have access to quality medical services, able to provide a correct diagnosis in a short period of time. With the help of a private health insurance policy, any personal benefits from access to the most advanced medical techniques may choose their clinic, but also the doctor to interpret the results.
Private health insurance is a tool with long-term use, which can provide the necessary financial security when a serious problem arises. Therefore, the best decision is to conclude an insurance policy when a person is in good health, the insurance process becoming more complicated when they suffer from preexisting conditions. Through the option of customizing the insurance policy, the customer can improve his/her standard package chosen with various clauses, depending on his/her specific needs. In this way, the customer can choose the type of regular medical investigations he/she wants to perform, can reduce medical expenses, and streamline the process of diagnosis and treatment.
