Hi folks!
How are you today?

If you had to choose between paying your mortgage and paying your health insurance, which would it be?

We don't have health insurance here, but if we did have it, I would choose the mortgage. As someone else said a roof over your head is the most important. Health insurance is only relevant when you need healthcare.

That's why we have an Emergency Fund, but I'll answer as if we didn't. I would chose to pay the mortgage. I know a lot of people are behind on their mortgages right now, but that is still REALLY, REALLY BAD. If we had to pay out of pocket for health care in an emergency, we would sell

Well, I've been in that situation before a couple years ago. We payed our mortgage. Actually had to drop our health insurance for a while.
