Six Ways To Save Money On Health Care
We all want to save money where we can. Here are some tips on how to save and improve your heath with over the counter medications (OTC medications).
1. Do not buy what you do not need or allergic to. This prevents waste and accidental reactions if medication is taken.
2. Do not store medications in your bathroom. The moisture will cause medications to change their consistency. This also prevents medications from disappearing without permission.
3. Do store medications in a dry area.
4. Keep medication placed in dispensers out of reach of children.
5. Do keep first aid equipment and medications easily accessible for emergencies. Do check expiration dates on all packages.
6. Buy and keep a thermometer. They are cheap and providers want to know if you have checked for a temperature. Either in the mouth or under the arm. Typically, human hands are typically 98.6. If they feel hot, there may be a temperature but this is not factual information, only a guess. This should be a gift for all new parents and new grandparents. Fever medication is over the counter and you will need to know the temperature, then follow directions. This can save ER expenses.
