Wellness and Prevention
While a website devoted to helping people be wise consumers of healthcare conjures up images of finding the right insurance policy or using an HSA account wisely, perhaps the best way to manage your expenditures on healthcare is to stay in good health.
The Partnership for Prevention determined that 100,000 lives would be saved each year just by having adults take an aspirin a day, help people stop smoking, get rectal and breast cancer screenings, and have those over 50 get annual flu shots. Many sources suggest that increased fitness could help curb the worldwide obesity epidemic. The point - it is impossible to talk about saving money on healthcare without talking about prevention and fitness.
Since countless other sites focus their livelihood on helping people maintain a healthy weight, stop smoking, exercise, and eat well, we don't want to be redundant. They do their thing well, and we'll do ours, which is helping you determine how to best use your hard-earned dollars on preventative health and fitness. So we will explore a few ways to get the most bang for your buck when it comes to prevention and fitness.
