10 Questions to ask when choosing a health insurance plan

Maria Health, the Philippines’ first online healthcare exchange platform has recently launched in the country. With Maria Health, Filipinos now have an easier way to understand their healthcare needs, and to compare and select the right plans for them, their families and their businesses.

MANILA, Philippines— Finding the right healthcare plan is not always easy, especially if one is doing it on their own. Availing of a health insurance is a highly individual exercise because each person has different needs. A freelancer’s requirements, for instance, will be very different from that of an employed parent. Someone who lives a sedentary lifestyle will have different needs from that of someone more active. There are many things to consider when one is trying to decide on a plan best for them, so it’s important to closely study one’s options before eventually selecting one.

The award was determined through a combined voting process that included the votes of team captains and managers from national teams all around the globe, an online public ballot of football fans, and votes by a select group of global media representatives.

“Cristiano proves once again that his dedication on the field and commitment to nutrition has elevated him to the top of his game, earning him one of FIFA’s top honors, The Best Men’s Player Award,” said Rich Goudis, CEO of Herbalife Nutrition.

Ronaldo, named the most famous athlete in the world by ESPN, adds to other major awards and accomplishments in 2017.  He won the 2016/17 UEFA Men’s Player of the year for the second consecutive year, after once again leading Real Madrid to the UEFA Champions League title and finishing as the top goal scorer, as well as helping his team win the Spanish La Liga cup.  In 2017, he also became the first player to score 100 goals in UEFA Champions League and European competitions.  He currently holds four Ballon d’ Or titles, the annual football award presented by France Football, and is in the running this year for his fifth.

Tips to Getting the Perfect Family Car for You

**Sponsored Post**

According to TopGear, almost half of the Filipino families are car-less. This was the result of a study done in 2014. The survey showed that 47% of the Filipino family do not own a car while 38% own at least one and 16% own more.

This means getting a car is not an easy choice for couples with kids. It has too many things to consider - can we afford buying one? Can we pay the car mortgage? Can we afford to pay it by cash? Is this something we need as soon as possible? How beneficial is it for us? Is it something we can have without sacrificing other family needs?
