3 tips to a healthier you
- Practice preventive care. Staying healthy increases the chances you’ll be there for your family and friends for many years to come. Be sure to take advantage of the free preventive services that come with your Marketplace plan and get your recommended health screenings.
- Understand what providers are covered by your health plan and where to go for care. Some plan types allow you to use almost any doctor or health care facility. Others limit your choices or charge you more if you use providers outside their network. Check with your plan for more information on what providers you can use and what your costs will be.
- Find a doctor you can trust. Choosing the right provider is one of the most important decisions you’ll make about your health care, and finding the right one can take a little work.
