Have you purchased a new gadget recently? If I ask you this question, your answer would probably be definitely a sounding YES. And how much did you pay for that gadget? Probably it’s worth your three-month salary.
I often wonder how these kids put importance in the value of gadgets that they have but put less value on their health.
I value my health and that is because I wanted to make sure that I would be a part of my children’s life for a long time. For me, prevention is better than cure, and I make sure to check it quarterly if my budget permits.
It is very important that we consult our doctors with regards to our health and not just because we are sick or not feeling well.
I do understand that there are times that because of financial constraints, we don’t often do what we should do. I’m no different because it also happens to me and it’s really costly every time I visit the doctor for checkup.
Our health is an investment and just like any investment, there is such thing as prepaid investment.
Just like those pre-selling condo units, there are health cards that we can purchase for our future needs.
Health cards are so easy to purchase and easy to use nowadays with different options offered by different HMO providers in the country. It would definitely save us a lot and we can visit our doctors as frequent as we want. And more importantly, there are accredited hospitals and reliable doctors to choose from.
I was actually curious on a friend’s post on his FB account and I could not help but check the health card that he mentioned. From the information that I gathered, here are the following packages and guess what I just discovered! It was not as costly as I thought it would be!
