What is Major Medical insurance? Who should consider purchasing Major Medical insurance, and why?

Major Medical insurance is coverage that pushes medical protection beyond the limits of basic hospital coverage. It covers the high-end medical expenses that we are least likely to incur, but worry about the most.

Major Medical insurance is good for anyone who doesn't want to spend a lot of money on medical insurance, but would like to be protected against being wiped out financially by a costly medical problem. Also, anyone who has just a basic hospital plan should consider supplementing it with Major Medical insurance.

Why? Because Major Medical insurance provides high-end protection for a relatively low cost.
