4 Easy Ways to Save on Healthcare
Healthcare can be downright outrageous in terms of cost. Here are 4 easy ways to save on your healthcare expenses:
Exercise: Exercising can be absolutely free AND can save you money on your healthcare. How? It’s because exercising can make you healthier, which means less trips to the doctor. Go on a daily walk, play outside with your grandkids, or get in your garden. It doesn’t have to be a chore!
Generic drugs: The next time your doctor prescribes a new medication, be sure to ask the pharmacist if there is a generic alternative! The generic prescriptions are almost always cheaper than the name-brand counterpart.
Use your network: You should always use providers in your insurance company’s network, otherwise, you’ll be paying more for your services! Most insurance companies have an online tool to search for doctor’s in their network.
Get preventative care: Going to the doctor for regular well-visits can save you money in the long run. Serious illnesses can be caught earlier, and therefore, require less treatment than an illness that has progressed.
