Good Health is Best Wealth
Annual wellness exams, preventive screenings, and maintaining a healthy lifestyle can all save you money. Insurance companies track metrics such as blood pressures, blood sugars, cholesterol numbers, and BMIs.  When patients aren’t healthy, conditions can develop that cost the patient and insurance company more money. Also, if conditions (such as cancers or diabetes) aren’t caught early on, the patients and insurance companies could end up paying more for the treatments and patients’ lives could be in jeopardy. When insurance companies have a large population of patients that require more expensive treatments, the companies can raise their premiums. For all these reasons, keeping healthy and keeping up on your screening tests and exams can save you money - as well as improve your health. Ask your nurse or doctor if there are screenings for which you are overdue and get them scheduled today.
