There is a group referred to as the sandwich group. This is the middle aged group that is taking care of their children and the parents. Often getting their own health care and retirement needs pushed to the side. What can you do?
Adults in good health need to see the provider once a year for checkups and any needed boosters or yearly shots. Several insurance policies may cover a well visit or health checkup. A health or well checkup may not be covered if any sick or illness concerns coincides at the same time. The visit will be billed as a sick visit instead.
Adults working may need to do lab work to help decrease insurance rates. A blood sample can help determine if you are at risk for any chronic illness or diseases. This is a great time to talk with your provider on how to manage your health based on your results.
Adults with chronic diseases may see the provider twice or three times a year for refills, education, and management of medications for the disease.
I recommend adults to schedule their health care appointments in between their other health care appointments. Such as seeing a provider for health care, then a few months later eye care, followed by a few months later dental care. This way there is always a provider reviewing your health care throughout the year and prevent a chance for disease to get ahead start.
