As 2019 draws to a close, it’s as important as ever to
ensure that you’re keeping your health at the top of your priority list and
finishing out the year strong. Preventive care is a key factor in maintaining
your overall health – and often surprisingly friendly to your bank account.
The end of the year is a great time to think about
scheduling your annual physical or any health screenings you may have been putting
off. Many health insurance plans offer regular wellness exams and other
age-specific, preventive health screenings – like mammograms and colonoscopies
– at little or no cost to you. If you’ve been holding off on scheduling your
wellness visit, check with your provider about available end-of-year
Perhaps you’ve been putting off surgery like a hernia repair
or joint replacement, or another important test or screening, such as a sleep
study or bone density test. If you’ve already met your health insurance
deductible for 2019, your out-of-pocket expenses could be minimal or even zero
for these procedures!
