Saving You Money
Have you ever left the doctor's office and felt like your appointment was rushed.... which made you forget some of the questions you'd planned to ask the doctor?
One of the best ways to get the most out of your health care dollars is to schedule your appointments at teh optimum time.
That being early in the morning before the practitioner's schedule gets backed up.... which leads to a rushed appointment for you.
And before your doctor writes you a prescription, ask for free samples of the drug and make sure you know what the prescription generally costs.
Angie Hicks/Angie's List: "It's important for consumers to be honest and open with their doctor about their budget and their health insurance plan because you want to make sure that the doctor prescribes something that you can actually afford because if they don't the consumer will end up not taking the medicine."
Another way to get the most value for your health care dollar is to review every medical bill and talk to your insurance company and employee benefits
counselor about any discrepancies in coverage.
