If you’re putting off scheduling an elective surgery, right now is the best time to do so. There are many benefits of planning surgeries before the end of the year. From hip replacements to joint surgeries, elective procedures are essential for health and should be prioritized.
Have you met your deductible already? Take full advantage of your health plan benefits by arranging surgeries before your deductible resets in January. Many doctors’ schedules begin to fill up at the end of the year as more people aim to do this, so act fast. It’s the best time for those surgeries that are normally pricey. Pay attention to the calendar, so you don’t pay more than you have to for surgeries pushed to next year.

Right now is also a good time to look for short-term rehab options. Short-term rehabilitation can be imperative to help you fully recover from the procedure. All surgeries can benefit from extra care. Medical staff provide around-the-clock care and therapeutic services with the goal of leading the patient to recovery. Physical therapy helps patients recover faster, heal properly, regain mobility, improve flexibility and manage pain.
Choosing a short-term rehab facility is an important decision, so you should know what to look for. Whether you are searching for the ideal place to stay to accommodate your needs or the needs of a loved one, the process requires asking some questions about each one you have in mind. Here are some to consider:
- Are the therapists and nurses highly trained?
- Do they offer an individualized treatment plan unique to you?
- What forms of treatment are available?
- What amenities are provided?
- Do they accept both private insurance and Medicare?
- Will they work with you if you are out of network coverage?
Consider the cost, quality and levels of care provided. Pay a visit and take a tour before making any commitments.
