ARBOR WEALTH: Earthquake insurance and the Grady Squash Festival

Published: Thursday, July 25, 2013 at 04:38 PM.

For non-business owners, life insurance and long-term care insurance are staples for many consumers/investors.  And few of us wish to risk going without health care insurance. The U.S. has the distinction of spending the highest amount on health care among the world’s industrialized countries, about 16 percent of GDP.  The remarkable rise in private insurance premiums is but one contributing factor. Every industry has the right to make a profit, but at what price? 

One way to recoup some of those ever-increasing co-pay dollars, based on your investment objectives, may be to invest in health care plan providers, medical device manufacturers and biotech companies.
