Let's take a look at the eight of the most popular types of insurance that people buy.

Choosing the best insurance for you is an important financial decision, so consider consulting a financial advisor to help you make a wise choice. 

Health Insurance

The U.S. spends more on healthcare than any other country, and that makes health insurance a must for most people. Even if you are healthy and don't usually need medical care, not having a health insurance plan makes your finances highly vulnerable. Just one unexpected trip to the emergency room could lead to financial peril.

If you are worried about the cost of health insurance, you can opt for a plan with a higher deductible, such as a high-deductible health plan (HDHP). You can also keep costs down by visiting in-network providers when you need medical care. The costs of paying for health insurance almost always outweigh the financial impact of paying for even some of the most simple surgeries or emergency room visits.

Auto Insurance

Auto insurance covers the potential financial impact of damage to your car, or damage you cause as a driver. Most states require at least liability auto insurance, but you might need more coverage. For example, if you are financing or leasing your vehicle, you will likely be required to have full coverage.
