At the beginning of every calendar year, many health insurance plan deductibles reset to $0. With most medical coverage, before your insurance company will start paying healthcare bills, your deductible must be met. You are responsible to pay the deductible amount to your health care provider.

With the end of this deductible year approaching, plan ahead to maximize your health plan benefits. Whether you have an individual or a group health insurance plan, now is the time to consider needed tests, screenings, medications and doctor visits to help save money on healthcare if you have met, or almost met, your deductible for the year.

Before the end of the year, here are some examples of things to consider getting completed:

  • Colonoscopy
  • –Lab work
  • –Diagnostic testing
  • –Surgery
  • –Outpatient procedures
  • –Prescription refills

If something has been troubling you and you’ve been putting it off, scheduling these types of appointments or procedures with your healthcare provider or specialists is a good idea.

Take the initiative now to make the most of your health plan.
