It’s that time of year again where we are slowly beginning to wind down the year and looking ahead to the new year. Of course we should always maintain living in the present as much as we can, but that doesn’t mean we stop looking ahead and making plans.
One of the best ways to make plans, especially when it comes to your health, is to look at your health insurance. We know it’s expensive and coverage varies from year to year, and of course then we have the deductibles that need to be met.
Did you know for example, that your insurance may entitle you to a certain number of visits each year for physical therapy or chiropractic care? Have you used any of these visits up? Technically you’re paying for them through your premiums and it may be a good idea to use them before the end of the year, because they do not roll over. That’s right, if you have 24 visits and you’ve only used 4 for the year, the other 20 are lost. Insurance companies gain and your loss.
But if you were to use those visits, you will not only be getting value for money, but also you are going to be helping yourself feel much better. Why?
Reason one is that getting adjusted will help you remain fit and active. It will ensure that any episodes of back or neck pain are kept at bay.
Reason two is that if you are having some problems with your back or neck, if you get it looked at early and use up some of your visits, you will help prevent your condition from worsening. Imagine if you ignored your pain or discomfort and then close to Christmas your back goes. Not only are you suffering for the holiday, but it will take more effort to get better again and treated. Moreover, as it’s close to the year end, you might only have time for four visits and then you go into the new year and you use up another 10, you’re down to 14 for the remainder of the year.
So I think you can see it’s important to stay on top of things. Of course, things take time, we get it, which is why we have a really good appointment system. You can download our app and make a booking easily through that. Moreover, it’s really easy to update that booking, change it or whatever. But the booking makes it easier for us to be more efficient to help you get in and out quickly and make the whole experience a pleasure.
So make sure you use up as many of your visits this last part of the year to help you remain healthy or get any of those niggling pains sorted early.
