Health Care Hacks to Save Money

 In Health Blog

Here are two ways to save money in the modern healthcare system that you may not be aware of.

  1. Insurance alternative– a health share. If you are in reasonable health then this is no brainer. Monthly fees are a flat rate, (e.g. $250 for single person) with a flat liberal deductible of $1000. Family plans drop the price even more. My experience is that they are easy to deal with, answer the phone, and reimburse without question. If interested I can send you an invite for Liberty Health, just let me know.
  2. Inexpensive lab tests.  Did you know that YOU can order any blood work (and other labs) online (walkinlabs) without a doctor’s order? You can also walk straight into Boulder Community Hospital and self-pay for ANY lab test (including MRI, CT scans, blood work, x-ray etc) – Click here for a sample price list. This is especially useful if you have not met your deductible.

These prices are exponentially lower than most insurance prices and even a co-pay through a doctor’s visit. I have been using these methods now for years and can even get you 15-20% lower than the price online. Of note, my service to the community is to not up-charge on lab tests, because healthcare is costly enough. Just let me know if you need help ordering or interpreting mainstream or alternative / functional medicine lab tests.
