With medical costs soaring and families finding it increasingly difficult to budget for their healthcare costs, health cash plan provider HSF is advising people to consider taking up a health cash plan.
Health cash plans give people cash back on everyday medical costs, such as dental check-ups, contact lenses and acupuncture, and also covers unexpected costs, such as those incurred during hospital visits.
The great benefit of health cash plans, like HSF health plan, is that they help families and individuals budget each month for potentially costly treatments. Not only that, but you put money in knowing that you have a very good chance of getting all, or more, of it back during the year. Private medical insurance, on the other hand, is a lot more expensive and there's no guarantee that you will need to use it.
Stephen Duff of HSF says families need to maintain their health now to avoid more serious health issues and costly operations in the future, “Families are feeling the strain. They are eating a less nutritious diet - capitalising on buy-one-get-one-free offers - and leading a more stressful lifestyle. Routine dental and optical visits are important, as early detection not only saves you money, but also increases the chances of successful treatment. Now is an important time to consider the long-term savings made by well-managed health.”
