| Health Care
Health care is the treatment and management of illnesses of
the elderly, and the preservation of health through services offered
by the medical, dental, complementary and alternative medicine, pharmaceutical,
clinical sciences, nursing, and allied health professions.
Health insurance like other forms of insurance is a form of collectivism
by means of which people collectively pool their risk, in this case
the risk of incurring medical expenses. It is sometimes used more
broadly to include insurance covering disability or long-term nursing
or custodial care needs. Health insurance quotes are easy to come by, they can even be found online.
Medicine is the art and science of healing. It encompasses a range
of health care practices evolved to maintain and restore health by
the prevention and treatment of illness. Contemporary medicine applies
health science, biomedical research, and medical technology to diagnose
and treat injury and disease, typically through medication, surgery,
or some other form of therapy.
