Stretch Health Care Dollars, By Comparing Costs

The more managed health care takes over, the more
red tape, it seems. As insurance is a necessity, here
are some ways to stretch your health care dollars:

* Carefully read every bill. Many times, you can be
charged twice for the same procedure. Other times,
you will have to play the automated phone game to
straighten out a covered service that wasn't covered.

* Read any mail that arrives from your insurance
company. Be aware of any changes in coverage.

* Question any charges you do not understand.
After all, it's your health plan.

A small investment in due diligence can over time
result in substantial savings.
