This Word Choice that Will Save You Money

Health insurance can be confusing. Just knowing what questions to ask can help you save money.

One essential question to ask your doctor’s office is whether they accept or participate in your insurance. These may sound like the same thing, but if your doctor simply accepts your insurance, you may be surprised by bills later.

This video explains what it means to accept and participate in an insurance plan, and how this can save you money.

Keep Your Own Medical Records

When you are under the pressure of having a medical ailment and talking to your doctor about your past, it can be hard to remember important details about your medical history. You may leave the appointment only to later think of something you should have mentioned. To avoid a situation like this, it helps to keep your own medical records.

The key is to put your documents together before you need them. When you or a loved one needs medical attention, you may not have the time or the resources to gather health information. So, it’s important that, before an emergency, you have a Medical Life List on hand for you and for each of your loved ones. In a nutshell, your Medical Life List is your own personal medical record created by you and updated by you. In this video, I help you get started.

After you watch the video, you can download your own Medical Life List template in my free toolkit.

Considerations for Choosing an Assisted Living Facility

Years ago, my father underwent surgery that caused him to be unable to live independently. The process of finding him an assisted living facility took a lot of work, communication, and coordination. One of the things I learned in this process is that there is no one right answer for everyone. The “right” facility will depend on factors that are specific to your loved one. That’s why I created some videos to help people in this situation consider much more than the obvious questions of location and cost. Here is part 1. I will share part 2 in a future post.
