The United States spends approximately $3 trillion per year on health care, highlighting the growing need for Americans to focus on improving their well-being. While Reno is recognized as one of the fittest cities in the United States, there is a lot of room for improvement for residents who tend to overuse tobacco and face a higher risk of diabetes and influenza. Below are four ways to improve your physical well-being in 2019.
Preferred Family Medicine, a primary care provider in Reno, NV, manages things differently than most healthcare clinics and we would like you to know that we understand the frustrations many people experience with today’s healthcare system. With this insight, we are able to eliminate these annoyances from our patients’ experiences. In no particular order, we bring you “The Top 3 Reasons You’re Frustrated With Your Healthcare”:
All too often, men avoid going to the doctor – nearly 60 percent, actually – unless there is a clear problem or health scare. Experts suggest this is because of societal and medical reasons. Specifically, because women generally need preventative care, they are more likely to be active in their healthcare needs. Men, however, do not need the usual hormone-related care that women do which means their healthcare takes a back seat.
If you have recently retired from California and settled in the affordable hills of Northern Nevada, then welcome to the Biggest Little City in the World and congratulations. You spent a lifetime working toward this goal, and years or even decades dreaming about the move and planning for the future. You may have even thought about health care and how you were planning to pay for it. What you probably haven’t thought about yet is where to find a reliable primary doctor you can count on.
Navigating one’s healthcare options for the family can be frustrating, to say the least. Costly traditional insurance routes leave one feeling little more than being “covered”, and certainly a little less in the bank account. With direct primary care (DPC), paired with a high-deductible health savings plan, or a health sharing program, the family may receive care without barriers or additional cost. The end result is significant savings. With open enrollment season upon us, consider alternatives to the standard insurance plan offerings.

Let’s face it. Healthcare coverage costs are out of control. That doesn’t stop people from getting sick though. And it doesn’t stop the modern workforce from constantly shopping the help wanted ads for jobs with better benefits. What if you could provide your employees with the sort of health benefit formally enjoyed only by the rich and famous, and at a rate that won’t cause your bottom line to plummet off the page?
