Maybe it’s a piercing pain in your knee. Or that one in your hip that keeps nagging you. Whatever the case is, if you’ve been putting off getting it taken care of now may be the time. Scans and lab tests need to be pre-approved. Surgery schedules fill up toward the end of the year. Plus, deductibles under most health insurance plans will reset to their full amounts beginning in January. If you’ve met your deductible payments for this year, talk to your doctor. After all, not using all your benefits can hurt too.
Take care of those overdue medical needs.
