Updated: August 22, 2016 - 2:30 pm

(NewsUSA) - Sponsored News - Even though they're young, members of Generation Z have experienced the effects of a recession, so it's no surprise they are prone to saving money for a rainy day. Yet one illness or injury that leads to an emergency room visit or inpatient care can result in medical bills that even a savings-conscious person didn't anticipate.

What Would It Take to Get You to the Dentist?
Posted: August 18, 2016

(NewsUSA) - Sponsored News - If you're like most Americans, you can probably think of 10 things you'd rather do than go to the dentist. Going to the dentist can be scary. It can be inconvenient. It can be expensive. And as a result, it's rarely at the top of anyone's "to do" list. In fact, 155 million American adults didn't visit the dentist last year. Despite the large role dental health can play in overall health, dentistry has unfortunately become a discretionary "nice to do" instead of a "need to have" due in large part to these barriers.
