BEFORE THE END OF THE YEAR, TAKE THE OPPORTUNITY TO SAVE MONEY AND TAKE CARE OF YOUR HEALTH CARE NEEDS
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.
This year, many people may have had additional costs if they became ill or had to have testing done. 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 services to consider:
- —Colonoscopy or Upper Endoscopy (EGD)
- –Lab work
- –Diagnostic testing
- –Outpatient procedures
- –Doctor Visits
- –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.
