While not every possible emergency can be anticipated or planned for, there are some common ones that have proven to have devastating effects in the past.
Health insurance is an absolute must not only to provide you with quality care in the event of a medical emergency, but to prevent all kinds of financial issues if something major happens. A devastating medical expense such as cancer treatment, major surgery, etc. could mean having to file bankruptcy unless you have insurance to cover these expenses.

You get to choose which one you want.
Which job would you choose? If you chose Job B, you effectively chose Long Term Disability Income - to insure the continuation of your income by giving up around 3% of your income to guarantee 2/3 of it tax-free in the event of a disability. When you look at the ramifications of choosing Job A, the question is not whether you can afford Disability Income, the question is can you afford not to have it?
