Health insurance plays a key role in Arizona’s public health

The cost of health care is often a determining factor in the choices people make about their health.

In public health, we work to make the healthy choice an easy choice and help people embrace a healthy lifestyle.

Yet, oftentimes, the cost of health care is a determining factor in choices people make about their health. It can prevent someone from seeking medical care or even force a choice between purchasing food or filling important prescriptions.

Basic needs must be addressed first for someone to reach their healthiest state. For example, someone who doesn’t know where their next meal is coming from or who is struggling to feed their family is less likely to prioritize controlling their blood sugar or taking time off to get an eye or foot exam.

I learned early on in my career that health insurance can significantly change lives, especially if someone has the wherewithal to leverage the different choices available to them to obtain more affordable, accessible and higher-quality care.
