Hormone replacement therapy has been shown time and again to improve quality of life, reverse the symptoms of aging, prevent bone loss and so much more. If you’re experiencing a diminished enjoyment of life due to aging, then it’s possible hormone replacement therapy (HRT) is right for you. It’s important to pay attention to your health so you can identify when your body is not performing at its best.
A common concern among individuals who seek hormone replacement therapy is how they’re going to pay for it. This often raises the question of whether hormone replacement therapy (HRT) is covered by insurance. In short, the answer is, “it depends.” Factors such as the type of therapy and the type of insurance plan can affect whether the treatment you seek is covered.
A primary care physician is, in many ways, the gateway to a healthy life. Your primary care physician (PCP) can be a resource for everything from annual physicals to answering questions and steering you toward trusted specialists when needed. But a recent survey by the Kaiser Family Foundation shows that a growing number of people, particularly on the younger side, don’t have a PCP relationship.
If you don’t seem to make it to the doctor’s office every year for your annual physical, you’re missing out on a big opportunity to take control over your own health. One checkup a year can tell you a lot, plus there are things you can do before and during the visit to make it even more valuable.
