A Healthy Way to Save Money

How to Maximize Your Health Insurance Benefits

Have you been putting off a medical screening or a minor surgical procedure because of the cost? If you have, the next few months are a good time to take action—and save money. Here’s why.

With most medical insurance plans, your deductible resets in January. By this time of year, many people have already met their medical deductible, which is the amount you pay out-of pocket for medical care before you start to receive benefits from your insurance company. If you’ve met your deductible and schedule a medical procedure in 2015, instead of waiting until 2016, your health insurance could pay for most if not all of the costs.

Not sure where you stand with your health insurance deductible? A quick call to your insurance provider will give you the information you need.
