United Healthcare – March 2016 Dares
A couple weeks ago something pretty scary happened to me. A package arrived at my doorstep and I was eager to open it. I used a pair of scissors to cut open the box, but the packing tape was really tight. I yanked on the scissors to help jiggle the tape loose and by doing this I accidentally stabbed myself in the opposite forearm with the scissors. It hurt. Bad!
Almost immediately I realized I was going to need stitches. It was a Saturday afternoon and both my husband and Baby Awesome were taking naps. I woke them up and we headed to Urgent Care to get my arm looked at. I ended up getting two stitches and having to go to Urgent Care four times over the next ten days. I’ve never been more thankful for my health insurance. All those times in Urgent Care could have really added up, and I was happy to know my care was covered under our family’s health insurance plan (and no co-pay!)
One thing I feel very strongly about it understanding your health care coverage as well as preventative options. 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 education:
- Test Your Smarts – Test how much you know about managing health care insurance costs for a chance to win.
- See & Sound Off- Watch the “Virtual Visits” video and share your opinion for a chance to win. The video is a little under two minutes long but I think it’s really helpful because virtual visits are becoming more preferred options for patients compared to waiting in doctor’s offices.
- Concentration Game – This month’s game is to match the UHC tool to its definition for a chance to win. I completed it, but it took me 18 moves to figure it out. I hope some of you can complete the game in less moves than I did.

I like the snow. February is usually the snowiest month of the year here.
As a runner I don’t know that there is much to love about February but with it being March the warmer weather excites me. I also like the time changing back, more daylight in the evening!

I like March madness basketball games. But I’m not good at predicting and making a bracket.
What I love about March is planting seeds to get ready for my container garden in the spring! Also planting milkweed seeds for the Monarchs!
