Five reasons you shouldn't put off your annual physical
We know that keeping up with everything during this pandemic is not easy. But making sure you keep up with your health is extremely important! One way to know that you’re at your healthiest is by getting your annual physical. Here are five reasons why you shouldn’t put it off.
- It’s covered under most insurance – If you don’t use your benefits, you’ll lose them at the end of the year! You’re already paying for insurance, so make sure you get the most out of it each year. Some insurance companies and employers even give additional incentives if you complete your annual physical. And if you don’t have insurance, don’t worry! We offer a 30% discount and price transparency so everyone can have access to the highest quality care.
- It’s a great way to maintain a relationship with your physician – Going in for your annual physical can help your physician have a complete picture of your health. That way, if you’re sick or injured, they can provide you better treatment because they already know your medications, conditions and medical history. It can also help you feel more comfortable discussing concerns with a physician when you see them regularly.
- It can help catch problems before they develop – We want to prevent problems, not treat them. Coming in every year for a physical helps your physician have a baseline of your health, so if things start to change, they can work with you to catch small changes early before they develop into more serious issues.
- It saves you money – Noticing small changes in your health can help keep you out of the emergency room and save you money. Addressing concerns with your primary care physician first can also save you time and money by not having to see a specialist.
- You’ll stay up to date with vaccinations – Vaccinations are an important part of preventing illnesses! Your physician will make sure that you have all the vaccinations that you need at your annual physical.
