It’s June. That means we’re almost halfway through the year. 2016 is flying by. Where does the time go? Baby Awesome aka Awesome Toddler is 17 months now and her world is expanding every day. It’s been incredible to watch our baby grow into a sweet little girl and see her climbing up and down slides at the playground (she’s fearless) and learning how to run. Yes, run. She chases Kona around the house and giggles like crazy while doing it. Here’s a video of her from my Snapchat the other day:
When I was pregnant with Baby Awesome my husband and I changed health care plans. One of the big factors in our decision making process was whether our current doctors, including my primary care physician, were considered to be in network or out of network with our new insurance provider. If they were out of network, then it was a deal breaker for us.
Sometimes when you choose a new health care plan you need to pick a primary care physician from a list of in network doctors. If you have a doctor you trust and want to continue using, then you are going to want to make sure they are in network with whatever plan you choose. There are tools available to allow you to look up this information like the Health4Me® app by United Healthcare or the United Healthcare’s Find A Physician tool.
It’s always important to make sure you understand your health care plan requirements before signing up for a plan. Otherwise you could end up in a situation where your doctors are out of network and that wouldn’t be good!
We Dare You To…
Now, remember all the information I just mentioned above when we talk about the dares for this month. If you’re unfamiliar with “We Dare You To Share,” it’s a community created by United Healthcare that provides healthy living information on things like nutrition exercise, health screenings and more. Every month they do several “dares” to encourage you to live a healthy and active lifestyle. This month there are three dares that focus on health care requirements, questions to ask your doctor, and tips for summer health and outdoor activities. This month’s Dares are:
- Take A Quiz – Test your knowledge about using medical benefits for a chance to win.
- Watch A Video- Share your opinion about searching for a physician for a chance to win.
- Match the Terms- The concentration game is back this month! Match up the where to go for health care terms with their definition for a chance to win.
