Five Things to Get Checked as Soon as You Have Health Insurance

Has your back has been bothering you? That rash from last summer still there? If you have been without health insurance for while, you may have some health concerns that have not been tended to.

Yearly Physical

Depending on how long it has been since your last physical, even missing one can be dangerous. Physicals are vital for you to do to catch anything that can or is harming your body. Early detection involving cancer and other fatal diseases can be caught at this stage. Insurance companies usually pay the full amount, meaning no co-pay for your yearly physicals.

Mammograms

About 1 in 8 US women will develop invasive breast cancer over the course of her lifetime. Once you have gotten your insurance, be sure to set an initial appointment to get a mammogram.

Pap Smears

This year, an estimated 12,820 women in the United States will be diagnosed with cervical cancer. It is estimated that 4,210 deaths from the disease will occur this year. A pap smear is used to screen for cervical cancer. The assessment is usually done in combination with a pelvic exam that you could get during your yearly physical.

Prostate Cancer

Gentlemen, approximately 11.6% of men will be diagnosed with prostate cancer at some point during their lifetime. Be sure to get your prostate checked once a year by a medical professional.

Dental

If you miss cleanings and don’t go in for routine checks, bacteria can not only rot your mouth but find their way into your bloodstream, possibly resulting in death. Get a healthcare plan that includes dental; you and your loved ones will appreciate it. And contact us to let us know how we can help you get insured.
