I’ve been crying myself hoarse on why you should opt for independent health coverage even if your employer currently provides one.

I hope you’ve already taken this all important step.

stumbled across this today while deciding whether i should take additional health insurance in addition to the one provided by my employer and found your blog useful.

one suggestion. you seem to have labels for blogs but there is no listing of what labels have you used so it is difficult to search only for a specific set of blogs unless your page has the labels in one of your posts.

it would be good if you can list the labels on the right hand side and clicking them can show the related blogs thus increasing user convenience.

keep up the good work!

Your blog was a literal eye opener for me and have pushed me to now add an extra independent insurance for myself. Never knew your employers insurance coverage can chuck u too.

Thanks again
