If you don’t see your doctor regularly or take regular prescriptions, you may not be required to pay the total amount of your deductible. But, this can alter at any time. It’s the chance you’re taking. If you’re injured or suffer a severe illness, are you enough to meet the deductible on your insurance policy? Are you worried that you’ll be paying more than you saved?
