In the grand scheme of things, it always seems like those who are prepared turn out to be more successful. The same can be said about being prepared when an emergency strikes. Here are a couple of ways that preparation can actually save you money when you visit an ER in San Antonio.
Have A Medical Bag Ready – In your medical bag you will want to have your medical records and most recent history from your doctor, a list of any allergies, and any current medications you are on. Having this information helps your doctor understand a little more about your history and can help to save money by reducing the chance of being given any unnecessary tests or labs.
Let Us Help You – Giving your doctors and nurses any helpful information about your symptoms, can also help you avoid additional tests. Providing your doctor with as much information as you can, allows them to narrow down the cause of your medical issue.
