Managing Your Personal Finances, With or Without Health Insurance


Managing Your Personal Finances

Many people assume that if they have little income or no health insurance, they have no reason to speak with a financial planner. In fact, financial planners routinely provide guidance to people in these circumstances, and an increasing number of them now specialize in counseling people with a chronic illness or disability. Additionally, getting good tax advice can be critically important to those hoping to maximize their allowable medical deductions, as well as to people relying on disability insurance. Call us at 1-800-344-4867 to ask about help with financial planning. 

To learn more about navigating the health care system when health insurance or finances are a problem, and to get tips on managing medical debt, see the materials produced by the Georgetown University Health Policy Institute in collaboration with the National Endowment for Financial Education.
