Act Fast to Maximize Your Health Benefits
Too many patients avoid seeking treatment for troublesome conditions simply because they don’t want to pay a fee to be seen by a professional. Most insurance plans come with a predetermined deductible, which needs to be met before services will be covered partially or entirely by your insurance provider.
Throughout the year you will begin contributing to your deductible via both planned and perhaps also unplanned visits to medical professionals. The costs associated with these visits often add up more quickly than you think, so you may be close to reaching your deductible.
Once the year is over, a new deductible will take effect, leaving you back at the starting point for another year of costs and fees. This is exactly what makes the last few months of the year an opportune time to address your most pressing needs for orthopaedic care.
In addition to reviewing your health insurance deductible, now is also a good time to check your FSA (Flexible Spending Account), if you have one. An FSA is an account used to pay for health care expenses, but the funds often expire at the end of the year – any money left over is forfeited. Schedule an appointment now to use up this benefit before the end of the year!
