Take Advantage of Your 2019 Health Benefits Before It's Too Late!
Make the most of your health insurance by scheduling necessary appointments and screenings before December 31st.
During the fall and winter months, it's easy to get caught up in holiday planning and forget to take advantage of your insurance benefits. Consider the best strategy for utilizing available health insurance plan benefits before the end of December.
- Check to see if you've met your deductible—the predetermined amount of healthcare expenses that must be covered before your health plan begins paying the majority (if not all) of expenses related to necessary medical care.
- Review your Flexible Spending Account (FSA) balance, if you have one. The Internal Revenue Service requires these accounts, which hold pre-tax dollars set aside to pay for healthcare-related expenses, be depleted by the end of the year or the money is forfeited.
- Schedule healthcare appointments, screenings or procedures before the end of the year. If you've met your deductible, making appointments now potentially can save you hundreds or even thousands of dollars, depending on the healthcare need. Further, if you have any unused FSA funds, scheduling services now helps to ensure those hard-earned dollars are spent, not lost.
