An ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure.
November is Preventative Care Month!
When it comes to healthcare, most people act reactively instead of proactively. Going to the doctor when you aren’t sick can feel like a waste of money to some.The truth is, most health insurance plans cover a set of preventative services. Additionally, you are likely to spend more money when a problem arises rather than if you had prevented it in the first place. Preventative healthcare can not only help save you money, but it can potentially save your life through screenings, check-ups, and counseling that can help prevent illnesses or diseases that are under the radar.
Examples of preventative care include:
- Annual check-ups
- Cancer screenings
- Counseling on topics such as quitting smoking, treating depression, reducing alcohol or drug use, eating healthfully, and exercising regularly
It is easier to make healthy lifestyle choices when you have the information and guidance of a healthcare provider. At Sage Neuroscience Center, we provide integrated care, combining behavioral health management with primary care. This type of integrated care allows us to respond better and more accurately to our patients’ needs by looking at your behavioral health as well as your physical well-being.
