The Costly Healthcare Mistake You Make

Go now or pay later...

Is your medical insurance sabotaging your health? Men with high deductible plans are less likely to go to the doctor—even for serious conditions, according to new research from the University of Minnesota.

If that seems pretty obvious, it is. If you have to pay more, you’re less likely to seek care and instead save a little dough, right? The problem: Guys who ignored serious symptoms (like irregular heartbeats) to avoid the cost of an E.R. visit landed in the hospital anyway with more severe problems and higher bills.

The solution: If you think you should get checked out, you’re probably right. You might have to shell out some cash now, but it’s often much cheaper to prevent a problem before it worsens. And there are plenty of ways you can save money on medical bills that don’t damage your health.
