Tips and tools

to save money this open enrollment season

for health insurance

(ARA) - The leaves are changing colors, children are back in school, and football rules the weekends once again. But don’t forget another annual fall tradition - benefits open enrollment. This is the time of year when millions of employees across the country have a chance to review their benefits provided by their employer and decide what programs to enroll in or change for the following year.

the coming year, making sure their doctors are in their insurer’s care provider network or evaluating prescription drug coverage.”

As open enrollment season draws near, it is important to understand your health insurance options, as it’s one of the biggest benefits provided by your employer. Most companies typically set aside a two-week period between September and December for open enrollment. So be prepared, because if you miss this window of opportunity you likely cannot enroll in or change your health coverage until next fall.

1. Set aside enough time to review your health insurance options. It’s important to review each of the health insurance plans that your employer offers. Remember that there’s more to each plan than co-pays and premiums. For example, some plans offer vision exam coverage and different prescription drug coverage, while others may offer wellness programs that can lead to discounts on your premiums. Also keep in mind that health reform has changed insurance coverage in recent years. As part of the new law, children under age 26 can be enrolled as dependents on their parent’s plan, and many preventive care services, such as children’s immunizations or mammograms, are typically covered by health plans at no cost to you.

“When reviewing their health coverage options, 50 percent of people spend only an hour or less reviewing their choices,” says Rebecca Madsen, senior vice president of UnitedHealthcare. “But in many cases, consumers who spend quality time reviewing their health plan options can find ways to save money - whether it’s through selecting a plan that better fits their expected health costs in

Madsen suggests the following tips and tools to help prepare for open enrollment: Three tips to help consumers select the best health plan:

2. Make sure your doctor is in-network - it can save you money on out-of-pocket costs. Even if you don’t plan to make any changes to your health insurance this year, it’s always good to ensure that any doctor you see regularly - or plan to visit in the coming year - is in your plan’s care provider network. If you plan to visit a doctor or hospital outside of the network, be sure to understand how your costs will differ from an in-network care provider. 3. Look for incentive-based wellness programs. Many companies are promoting wellness programs that reward employees for making healthy choices and being more

engaged in their own health. These plans could save up to $1,000 or more on annual premiums. Incentive-based programs, such as UnitedHealthcare’s Personal Rewards, provide financial rewards for things such as meeting specific cholesterol or body mass index targets, or even signing up for a telephonic or online health coaching program. Three health tools designed to help consumers learn more about their health benefits and save money: 1. Use a health care cost calculator or estimator. Health cost calculators enable you to estimate the prices of medical treatments and services between different physicians and hospitals. For example, UnitedHealthcare’s myHealthcare Cost Estimator provides a retail-like “comparison shopping” experience for more than 300 procedures and services by revealing side-by-side quality and estimated cost information for doctors and hospitals. Using a planning tool is particularly important if you are expecting any significant health events in the next year, such as having a baby or undergoing surgery.

can be especially challenging to understand what a formulary is or how a Flexible Spending Account differs from a Health Savings Account. UnitedHealthcare’s UHC. tv is an online educational resource where anyone can watch short videos on a variety of health insurance and wellness topics. Some videos include comedic skits as well as national health personalities. Similarly, is a virtual community that explains a variety of different health benefits and wellness-related topics while interacting with the townspeople, such as shopkeepers along Main Street or entertainers at the community Wellness Fair. Consumers usually have more than one option when it comes to choosing a health insurance plan, so it is important to fully understand your options and choose the plan that is best for you and your family. This year, don’t miss any opportunities to save some money while taking steps toward better health.

2. Take advantage of mobile apps and online tools to engage in your own health. Many health insurers have created apps and Web-based tools to help people locate a doctor, review claims, ask questions about their benefits and find more information about their health plans. For example, UnitedHealthcare’s Health4Me mobile app helps plan participants easily find physicians, compare treatment costs, check the status of a claim or speak directly with a nurse for medical information at no additional cost. 3. Use reliable online resources for a “Health Care 101” lesson. Many people don’t understand terms like co-pay and deductible, so it

and Chiropractic Care

Jeff Dettwiler, DC Dettwiler Chiropractic

Studies have shown that women who receive chiropractic care throughout their pregnancy have shorter and less painful deliveries with fewer complications and fewer interventions.

So let us take a look at why a pregnant woman can benefit from chiropractic care throughout her pregnancy. One of the first, more obvious, reasons is the rapid change in weight that a pregnant woman goes through. This increase in weight, in combination with postural changes and changes in sleeping positions changes the stress or load on the joints in the low back and pelvis, often resulting in back pain and dysfunction especially late in pregnancy. Dietary changes and nutritional habits can also affect pain and dysfunction. There is also a loosening of ligaments to allow for growth and labor. The loosening of ligaments along with weight gain can cause pronation of the feet (flat feet), and pronation of the feet changes your center of gravity, again causing abnormal and undue stress on the joints of your spine and pelvis. A chiropractor can help to maintain proper motion and alignment of

your spine and pelvis, ultimately reducing the stress on the joints so mom can focus her energy on taking care of herself and her baby as opposed to being consumed by pain and discomfort. Anyone who has had a child or been there to experience the miracle of childbirth can attest to the fact that the body is incredibly intelligently designed. To meet all of the needs of your growing baby it is important to have a properly functioning nervous system, free of interference from spinal misalignments. If you have ever read what goes on from week to week in fetal development, you realize that the body can do incredible things as long as it is allowed to function the way it was designed. Since the nervous system controls and coordinates all of the functions of your body and the spine’s only functions are movement and to protect your nervous system, then it stands to reason that if you maintain the proper motion and alignment of your spine your nervous system can function the way that it is supposed to. For more information on how a chiropractor can help you or your loved ones please visit our website at www. or give our office a call at 317 841-1209 to schedule your appointment today.

Is it time for a RESET? Imagine your body had a Reset button…like the one your computer has. A button you could just hit, and it would clear away the toxic junk that’s been slowing your system down. How great would that be?

We may not have an actual button, but there is a program that can restore the body to its original “factory settings” … without drugs, without fasting. And from August 15 – September 4, I gave it 110% to see what would happen. My personal experience was nothing short of…amazing! So this month I want to share with you the “Top 10 Reasons to do the Ultimate Reset.” 10. Take a 21-Day BREAK from intense exercise. If you don’t exercise…you won’t need to start. And after it’s over, you’ll feel like exercising. 9. Eat fresh, whole, delicious, real FOOD. 8. Become a better cook! 7. Educate your whole family about healthier foods and eating. 6. Get in tune with your body…your senses, energy levels and moods and how those things change based on what you eat. Visit me here to find out more about my Reset journey! 10

5. Kick your cravings! Change your relationship with food and know what the difference is between real hunger and just wanting to eat. 4. Remove toxins from your body and clutter from your life. 3. Lose weight! It’s not the primary goal of the program but if you have weight to lose you will lose weight, and that’s always a nice bonus. 2. Be empowered to make better food choices for LIFE! Lora L. Smith Fitness/Nutrition Coach 317-431-7177 - Central Indiana’s Pulse on Good Health

12 - Central Indiana’s Pulse on Good Health

I’ve trained with a 6th degree black belt and former international karate competitor for some time now. Prior to that, I trained for several years at a local martial arts school. While I liked the owners and students at the local school, and the workout was challenging, it didn’t take more than a few weeks of training with my current instructor to realize I was dealing with a totally different standard. He is an “old school” instructor – training is as much about skill, discipline, and proper technique as it is about learning the simple mechanics. When you visit a karate class, you will find the instructor addressing rows of students all dressed in their “gis” or traditional karate uniform. At a glance, the students all look the same. Soon you notice the pecking order. The black, brown and higher belt ranks stand in the front row; the newest students, white belts, stand in the back. Intermediate belts line up in-between. This arrangement is as true in the old standard, as it is in the new standard. The difference with the old standard was that a black belt actually meant something. It signified an elite level of skill, training, and discipline that was earned and worn with pride. Nowadays, a black belt indicates nothing more than a student who has memorized enough techniques and paid enough money. To be certain, there are schools which still operate under the old standard, as there are still students in new standard schools who set their own bar and strive for a higher level of skill. But, it is fairly easy nowadays for a karate black belt to masquerade as an expert – there are just too many schools which allow it. 14

This is simply not true with weight loss and fitness. When the topic of my occupation comes up in social situations, I’m amazed by the number of fat, out of shape people who launch into a litany of how healthy they eat and how much they work out. I simply nod politely and interject the occasional “is that so?” After all, if an individual is perfectly content with herself, it doesn’t bother or concern me in the least. Just like today’s karate black belt, however, she is masquerading as an expert. Unlike today’s karate black belt, she can’t hide the deception by dressing a certain way or by standing in the front row. If you are on a weight loss and fitness program it is easy to become discouraged when the fat does not drop off and the muscles don’t bulge as quickly as you would like. The day will come, however, when you receive your first unsolicited compliment: “Hey, you’ve lost weight! Looking good!” Smile and enjoy it. It means you are at the front of the class achieving an A+ in your new field of study. You are recognized as an expert at being thin by actually being thin. There is no way to deceive anyone on this.
