Give the gift of health
Thursday, January 10, 2008/
Only in the US? Patchy health insurance coverage and very limited public health services available in the US mean that many people are unable to access medical care when they need it. According to Springwise, one enterprising US insurance company has moved to turn what some may consider an unfortunate situation into an opportunity by putting a pre-paid healthcare gift card on the market.
The Highmark insurance company’s Healthcare Gift Card can be charged up with up to $US5000, usable to pay for a range of medical care, from visits to the doctor to dental work or cosmetic surgery.
In many cases, of course, it would just be better to use the money to take out a comprehensive health insurance policy for a person. But for rich parents who want to give their kids an expensive cosmetic surgery procedure for Christmas, the Healthcare Gift Card could be perfect.
