Want lower premiums … KICK BAD HABITS

According to ehealth data, health insurance policyholders in the obese category pay an average monthly premium 22% higher than those in the normal category. It’s even higher for obese men, who pay 29% higher than normal weight men.

Smokers cough up 14% more each month than non-smokers. For women smokers it’s 22% higher on average.

Best wishes,
