Resolve to Make Preventive Care a Priority
Resolutions and wellness are common themes in the new year. Did you know that your Platinum-marketed policy provides benefits for common wellness and preventive health care, in addition to protecting you against the costs of a critical illness?
According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), chronic diseases and conditions like heart disease, stroke and cancer are among the most common, costly and preventable of all health problems. Many of these diseases and conditions are linked to unhealthy behaviors that you can change. Health-risk behaviors such as lack of exercise, poor nutrition, tobacco use and too much alcohol intake cause much of the illness, suffering and early death related to chronic diseases and conditions.1
Platinum believes in prevention and early detection, and we think you should be able to use benefits from your policy even if you don’t sustain a major illness or injury. Policies marketed by Platinum include wellness benefits that cover routine screening tests and wellness benefits to promote healthy lifestyles. This means that you may be able to receive benefits for joining a health club, taking a fitness class or participating in a weight-loss program. You can even receive benefits for alternative forms of care, such as yoga classes, when prescribed by a physician.
Whether your 2017 goal is to take preventive measures against critical illness or to simply have a healthier lifestyle, your Platinum-marketed policy is here to help.
