End of Year Savings

We understand the end of the year is a very hectic time. But while we look forward to the new, let’s also take stock of how we can improve today — and save!

At Big Bend Regional Medical Center we encourage you to take some time for yourself. Doing so could not only benefit your health, it could even get you more out of your money!

5 Reasons to Take Time for Your Health Before December 31.

Reason 1:
If you have an FSA account, don’t let this money go to waste!  Schedule your procedures to be completed prior to year-end for this year’s FSA eligibility.

Reason 2: If you need some kind of procedure, or if you’ve been considering some kind of elective surgery, you can recover during your time off over the holidays.

Reason 3: If you’ve met your health insurance deductible, take advantage of that fact. Remember, January 1 you start back at zero!

Reason 4: Physician offices aren’t as busy during November and December so you’re more likely to get an appointment quickly.

Reason 5: Putting off seeing a doctor or having a procedure just isn’t smart. Your good health is a present you give yourself and your loved ones. And in a season of giving, time and health are the greatest gifts.
