What Can You Do To Reduce Your Healthcare Expenses?


by Roberta Carson, Zaggo, on April 2, 2018

In last week’s blog post I wrote about how the United States is the top spender in healthcare, yet Americans are not the healthiest population. A recent survey found that 85% of patients in the US feel care quality has not improved even though they are spending more on healthcare. Medical bills have frequently been cited as the number one reason for personal bankruptcy in the US. What can you do to reduce your healthcare expenses? Although there are many ways to save money on healthcare, today’s blog post focuses on how to avoid overpaying for healthcare.
