Today will be a travel day with one of my seniors as we have to go to the doctor in order to ensure good health; one routine checkup after the other. I just am floored when I hear how much a senior is charged for a 30 second visit. They get the routine, ‘Well, how have we been feeling dear? Any issues? Well, everything sounds good, see you in a year!’ thing and then the bill is something outrageous like $8,000. (Too bad we can’t all make that kind of cash for such a small amount of time!)
We will take our time today as the roads are a little slick due to snow and some black ice from the blowing winds. I just want to ensure safe passage there and on the return to home. Everything, of course, is in God’s hands, so we will just have to pray for the best!
It seems that this time of year is packed with last-minute doctor visits –simply because most deductibles have been met by this time and so they cost the seniors (and all of us) the least bit of cash. Besides, it is just good for peace of mind to hear that you are as healthy as a horse! This make for a restful holiday season for the seniors and their family members, too.
Well, everyone, keep in mind that With Age Comes Respect. Get your seniors their checkups before January 1st!
