No Health Insurance? Delaying Care Can be Costly

Bloomberg News recently ran a story about Americans who are choosing to go without health insurance for the first time in their lives. The reason: cost. There’s no question that health insurance costs have risen for everybody over the last couple of decades. Going without it is a very personal choice, one that does carry a financial risk should a member of the family become ill.

At Montgomery Foot Care Specialistsin Montgomery, AL, we wouldn’t ever want our patients to avoid seeing us because of insurance reasons.

Delaying care can be costly

Often when people think they’ll have a problem paying for medical care, they put it off. When it comes to caring for your feet (and really, if we’re being honest, any part of your body) our podiatrists always recommend that you come in sooner than later. Ignoring things like heel pain, arch pain, persistent swelling, numbness, or discoloration usually means that by the time you’re forced to see a doctor, treatment for your feet

  • can take a lot longer
  • can prove to be more painful
  • will most likely keep you away from doing the things you love for much longer than it would have had you come in to see us earlier.
