    Question Seeing a Doctor

    In America, if you want to see a family doctor when you have the normal sore throat and headache, do you need to have health insurance to see the doctor? Or can you just go without health insurance and make payment after your visit?

    You don't need health insurance to see a doctor here. You just pay the fee for the service and then get treated. If you have insurance, then the insurance company will pay most of the bill, leaving you with the rest. (Generally called a co-pay.)

    Hospitals work differently when it comes to the uninsured - they'll bill you afteword. And if you don't pay on time, they WILL refer you to a collection agency.

    health insurance will depend on coverage - type of sickness, amount covered.. etc..it's better if you get it for free as company benefit!

    i dont think that health insurance should be must,because insurance provides you to get not paid,so its upon you to have insurance not the doctor ask you for the insurance.

    Definitely you wont require a health insurance to see your family doctor unless you want to pay him through a health insurance company.

    I don't think for the sore throat a health insurance is needed. I think Going to doctor is not a major operation that gives life death question.
