As an insurance agent, you know how important it is to help your clients stay healthy. This Women’s Health Month, we encourage you to focus on preventative care for your female Medicare beneficiaries. By doing so, you can help them make sure they have proper coverage, so they can detect potential health issues early and get the treatment they need.
One of the most important things you can do as an insurance agent is to remind your clients about the preventative care services that are covered under their Medicare plan. Many women may not be aware of the screenings and exams that are available to them and may not know how often they should be getting them. By educating them on these topics, you can help them take control of their health and stay on top of preventative care.
Some of the preventative care services you can discuss with your seniors that are covered under Medicare for women include:
- Pap smears: Test screens for cervical cancer and is recommended for women between the ages of 21 and 65.
- Pelvic exams: These exams can help detect issues with the reproductive system, such as ovarian cysts or uterine fibroids.
- Mammograms: Screening test for breast cancer and is recommended for women between the ages of 50 and 74.
It’s important to note that these are just a few of the preventative care services that are covered under Medicare for women, and they are a great place to start when educating your clients about preventative care. There are many other screenings and exams your clients may be eligible for, depending on their age and medical history, so spending extra time to go over the medical concerns they may have will provide you an opportunity to fully inform them on their coverage benefits.
During Women’s Health Month, make a difference by proactively promoting preventative care services to your female Medicare beneficiaries. When you encourage them to prioritize their health and catch any potential issues early on, you’ll not only benefit their physical well-being but also contribute to long-term cost reduction in healthcare. Reach out to your clients and emphasize the significance of preventative care, empowering them to take charge of their health and embrace a happier, healthier life.
