This makes it essential that we think in favor of a device that becomes instrumental in spreading the loss. It is in this context that we think about insurance. Protection against the possible chances of generating uncertain losses. It eliminates worries and miseries of losses or destruction of property and death. Health insurance is a contract between you and a health insurance company, which provided you a death during the contract term.
