5 easy ways to improve your health with Marketplace coverage
Published on September 7, 2017
Health coverage is important whether you're sick or healthy. Here are 5 ways your health insurance can help you maximize your health and well-being:
Take advantage of free preventive services: You may be able to get an annual visit or recommended preventive services for free, like the flu shot and depression screening.
Keep all your health information in one place: Use our "From Coverage to Care: A Roadmap to Better Care and a Healthier You" (PDF) to keep track of your coverage information, your providers, and your health. Use the checklist in the back to track your results.
Understand your insurance membership package: You probably got a membership package with information about your coverage and an insurance card. Read your materials carefully. You may need them when you see a provider or when you call your insurance company with questions. Never let anyone else use your insurance card.
Maintain a healthy lifestyle at home, at work, and in the community: Health insurance is important, but there's no substitute for a healthy lifestyle. Make time for physical activity, healthy eating, relaxation, and sleep.
