Catastrophic Health Insurance

Catastrophic health insurance policies (also called "Major Medical" insurance) have high deductibles ($500 or more) and low premiums, and typically provide coverage only for major hospital and medical expenses. There is often a lifetime limit ($1-$3 million) on the amount of covered costs.
