Do you have extended medical benefits that you need to use up before the end of the year? Don’t let them go to waste!
Here I’ve compiled some reasons to make sure you use them up, and also how to go about doing so to make the process a little easier for next year too.
Why You Should Use Your Benefits
Professional Care -> Optimal Wellness
Get professional care to make sure you’re not only feeling well, but feeling optimal! Even if you’re feeling great, practitioners like Naturopathic Doctors can make sure we keep you that way and ensure that you’re able to maintain a happy, healthy lifestyle. And if you’ve got any health concerns or health goals, we have so many options to get you back and feeling like yourself again.
Quit hoarding benefits!
You only have 6 weeks left to use up your benefits if they renew in January, so get things booked! So many people I know (including myself!) leave benefits until the end of the year because they don’t want to use them all up and be left in a lurch for when they really need them, but now is the time! It’s much nicer and less stressful if you’re able to use them up throughout the year, spread things out and have access to consistent treatment and follow up as you need it.
Stop wasting company bonuses
Companies offer benefits packages in lieu of paying you more salary, so it’s in your best interest (and theirs to have healthy employees) that you take advantage of all that they’re offering you. Try your best to use up each service they’re offering (within reason of course) to make sure you’re getting the best bang for your buck.
I’m very excited that I’m finally able to offer direct billing! If you are a part of the following plans, it’s very likely that I’m able to submit on your behalf so you don’t have to put the cost of the visit up front! If your plan isn’t included here, I’ll make sure you get an official receipt that you can claim through the plan your company uses.

How to Use Benefits and Avoid Crunch Time for Next Year
Find out what’s covered
Chat with your HR team or call the company you’re covered under to find out if there are maximums per visit, if you may be covered for additional supplements or lab testing and what percentage of each visit is covered.
Plan out your year
Once you know what you’re covered for and how many visits that may translate into, you can get a better idea of spreading them out across the year to help maintain health and wellness, AND so you’re not having to manage all of your visits in December each year.
Find professionals you want to see
If you don’t already have a massage therapist, or a chiropractor, or anyone else that’s covered under your benefits plan, check in with other professionals you already see because we often have really good practitioners to refer you to! You can also ask family, friends or coworkers to see who they’ve had good success with and who they may recommend.
Book your appointments!
The end of November and all throughout December things tend to book up REALLY quickly! Everyone is trying to use up those last benefits they forgot about so make sure you get a series of appointments booked if you have the benefits left.
I’ve still got some availability left for the end of November and into December and would love to see you to help you attain your health and wellness goals!
