This client is in good health and utilizes the opportunities to be active in the city and its surrounding natural areas, and they also are considering their lowest cost options for health insurance.

Because the client does not expect to need many medical services throughout the year, yet wants hospital coverage for safety reasons, he is searching for a plan that is simple and not going to take a significant chunk out of his bank account.
