Take care of your health. Do it for yourself and those who count on you.
You’ve got things to do and people who need you. And that means you need to be your healthy best. That’s not always easy for men and sometimes we have ourselves to blame. Did you know that men are 24% less likely than women to have visited a doctor for routine care in the past year? Or that men are 24% more likely to be hospitalized for pneumonia, an illness that could have been prevented by an immunization?
Today is the start of National Men’s Health Week. So starting today, we want to help you put your health at the top of the list.
Take the first step
Regular health check-ups, tests and immunizations are critical to good health. That’s because many problems don’t have warning signs. But when you know your risks you can take steps to help lower them. Fortunately these checkups and tests don’t have to cost a lot. Check your plan benefits to see what preventive care tests are covered. For more information on preventive health screenings that are right for you, talk with your doctor today!
