Health Care: Part 1:

We discuss issues of exercise and clean eating, as they relate to continued good health and our desired body shape.  But, I had a harsh reality-check in Janueary when my monthly health insurance premium went above $1000.00  per month for me to cover me and my children for health/dental insurance.

Another known benefit for reforming our basic approach to healthy living, is to help control medical costs.  We all known how many different diseases exercise and clean eating positively affects (heart disease, diabetes, cancer, high blodd pressure...).

Stay on top of your bills and organize your own test results so you are your best advocate when you interact with the medical world.  This can assure you have accurate information about your personal health history, if you change doctotrs or are suddently hospitalized, or if a previous condition flares up.  When the bills arrive, check them for accuracy, mistakes are often made.  Never be embarassed or afraid to challenge charges.  Last year I received a 'surprise' bill from a hospital following major surgery for location costs (these were never explained to me before the procedure,  even though I  investigated costs in advance,  to work out  how to save up to pay the deductible for the surgery,  beginning at the new year).  I contacted the hospital directly, explaining to them that I didn't have the money to pay the bill.  They quickly reduced the over-all charge and created a payment plan that I could afford on a monthly basis. FYI.
