Congrats, You Have Insurance—Now What?

While politicians were deep into their head-butting struggle last week, the Affordable Care Act (a/k/a Obamacare) officially went into effect. If you’re already covered under your employer, chances are your situation will remain the same. If you were uninsured before, however, you’ll have a new range of plan options to choose from.

Ideally, widely available low-cost healthcare can help us move toward becoming a culture of prevention—instead of waiting for the high-costs of critical care, more people will be able to take their health into their own hands. And many insurance plans will now fully cover preventive health services like routine checkups and well visits.

But while the ACA may put affordable coverage in your hands, there are still limits. Here are some things to keep in mind as you start down the road to managed-care wellness. Continue reading

WellnessFX. It’s Not Just About Your Health, It’s About Your Wallet

handbagIt’s already August, which means that fall is nearly here and the year is starting to wind down. If you’re like many people, you’ve seen your doctor several times this year, and still haven’t met your high-deductible insurance limit.

This means that you’re still paying out-of-pocket.

So for high-cost services like blood testing and lab work, it makes sense to go on the hunt for safe, simple, and inexpensive options. For as little as $29, the WellnessFX e-Checkup gives you access to a blood draw that tests more than 25 biomarkers, which you can get through your local LabCorp or Quest Diagnostics branch.

Yoga: It’s Good For The Blood

You might wrinkle your nose at the idea of doing yoga. Or maybe you’re doing yoga while you’re reading this. The point is, you probably have preconceived notions on the activity. Some people never try it, and other people live by it. Despite your experiences thus far, yoga’s stress-relieving properties deserve your attention. Science says so.

For those of you who only know yoga from passing a class at the gym or laughing at a spoof in a comedy, it might seem that twisting your body in such positions would be the opposite of stress-relieving. While some of the movements can be a little uncomfortable at first (okay, very uncomfortable), over time yoga becomes more about letting the mind roam free and less about struggling to hold hard poses.

Recovering From Cancer with WellnessFX

One of the hardest journeys a person can be forced to take is a fight against cancer. Depending on the type, the survival rate in America can be pretty good when caught early, but the treatments are devastating to the body. Chemotherapy sessions, surgeries, and therapy can all take their toll.

Though many people think of the disease as one for the elderly, cancer can be surprising and devastating for people of any age. Ping, pictured above, was diagnosed with Hodgkin’s Lymphoma Stage 2 cancer in early 2013. Lymphoma is a cancer of the white blood cells, which are responsible for a broad range of immune responses in the body (i.e., they help to keep us from getting sick). Cancer is usually classified in four different stages depending on how much the diseased has progressed. For lymphoma, Stage 2 means that two or more lymph node regions are affected. This can be especially dangerous because the lymph nodes are like a highway to the rest of the body: once the cancer gets here, it can hitch a ride in the blood stream and plant itself in different organs.
