Save more with these prepaid consultation plans
The rainy season is here and it brings a number of illnesses with it. According to the Department of Health (DOH), the public should watch out for water-borne diseases such as cholera and typhoid fever and vector-borne diseases such as dengue and malaria. They advise people to get on top of their health by building their body’s resistance and maintaining good hygiene throughout the coming months. But it’s equally important to get a health plan to help cover preventive or emergency care expenses whenever needed.
See, when it comes to people’s health, prevention is always better than a cure. Most illnesses, including some of the ones mentioned above, can be treated or at times even prevented if detected early. That’s why a lot of doctors ask their patients to see them regularly and not just when they’re feeling ill. Regular visits let doctors get a better sense of a patient’s overall health, allowing them to better identify potential problems before they become serious and recommend appropriate lifestyle changes or treatment.
Visiting a doctor, however, can be quite expensive. And it’s usually the reason most people cite as to why they skip visits. The problem is there’s always a chance that illnesses or conditions can develop into something more serious and it’s difficult to be sure without consulting a medical expert. Missing check-ups can prolong detection and treatment, which later leads to complications and more expensive medical expenses.
It’s important to develop a habit of regularly consulting with a doctor, especially during the rainy season when certain diseases are a lot more common. To help everyone out with this, we at Maria Health have partnered with some of the country’s top health maintenance organizations (HMOs) to make year-long unlimited checkup plans more affordable and accessible to everyone.
